A look inside NYC's new Amtrak Moynihan Train Hall at Penn Station

After nearly three years of construction, the new Moynihan Train Hall, in the James A. Farley Post Office building across Eighth Avenue from Penn Station, will open to the public on Jan. 1 as a waiting room for Amtrak and Long Island Rail Road passengers.

As commuters enter Penn Station next year, they will be welcomed by a new, $1.6 billion train hall complete with over an acre of glass skylights, art installations and 92-foot-high ceilings that Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, who championed the project, has likened to the majestic Grand Central Terminal.

To better serve Amtrak intercity customers and commuter rail passengers, Amtrak, in partnership with Empire State Development (State of New York), is expanding its passenger services into the new Moynihan Train Hall to improve passenger comfort and security.

Enhanced customer amenities include:

  • A grand and spacious train hall featuring a sky lit atrium
  • Dedicated customer waiting areas
  • A combined ticketing and baggage area
  • Improved passenger comfort and security
  • Accessibility for customers with disabilities
  • Inductive loop system for hearing assistance
  • Complimentary WiFi in all customer spaces
  • Dedicated lactation lounge for nursing mothers

New Metropolitan Lounge

The Moynihan Train Hall will include a Metropolitan Lounge (formerly ClubAcela), a premium lounge space providing travelers with a high-quality experience, including:

  • Priority boarding
  • Expanded food and beverage offerings
  • Family waiting area
  • Dedicated customer service agents
  • Private restrooms
  • Complimentary WiFi

Hours of Operations

Moynihan Train Hall will be open to the public daily from 5 am through 1 am and closed to the public between 1 am and 5 am. Between 1 am and 5 am, all Amtrak operations will be handled at New York Penn Station, including baggage, Red Cap services, access and egress to platforms.
