NYC Penn Station Entrance Partly Closed

Work began May 2 at New York Penn Station to improve the facility’s accessibility. The 18-month project will create an accessible entrance to the station.

In a service advisory, Amtrak said that during the project the station entrance at 32nd Street and 7th Avenue will be partly closed.

There will be no “up” escalator at that entrance. Those needing an “up” escalator should follow signs to the New Jersey Transit exit nearby.

The project will add an elevator, widen the entrance, replace the stairs, and replace the two existing escalators with three transit grade escalators.
