Amtrak's Moynihan Train Hall in the former Farley Post Office Building across from Penn Station in New York City is set to open in January 2021, Amtrak President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Flynn said this week.
The new hall will relieve crowding and offer enhanced facilities for travelers using Amtrak and MTA Long Island Rail Road trains, Flynn said during a Nov. 23 media call regarding Amtrak's fiscal-year 2020 preliminary results.
Amtrak and New York Empire State Development Corp. have been renovating the Farley Post Office into the train hall over the past few years.
The new facility will feature a sky-lit atrium, dedicated rider waiting areas, a combined ticketing and baggage area, improved passenger security, accessibility for riders with disabilities, WiFi in customer spaces and a new metropolitan lounge, according to the project's website.
The $1.6 billion project is being funded by a combination of dollars from the state of New York, Amtrak, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and joint venture developers.
