    Midtown West will one day be the home to the mammoth sized Hudson Yards Project, which is already undergoing construction.

  • Penn Station: Still Terrible But Hope is on the Horizon By Olivia Smedley | October 03, 2013

    Every day, around 600,000 commuters flow in and out of Penn Station, and boy do they hate it. Why is it so difficult to get in, around, and through Penn during peak hours (and even times in between)? It could be because the current station was built to accommodate only a third of the hundreds of thousands that arrive each morning. Any commuter knows how dismal, depressing, and downright annoying it is to simply be in the western world’s largest transportation hub, and for almost 20 years the city has been planning on its expansion.

  • The Battle Over Penn Station’s New Layout Has Started By Clemence Fontaine | June 05, 2013

    The case for moving the world’s most famous arena is not on the agenda yet. The City Planning Commission has given Madison Square Garden fifteen more years to prepare for its eventual relocating. Thus, Penn Station can start laying out its future extension. Indeed, unrealistic projects have already seen the light and the Municipal Art Society has launched a competition over Penn Station’s new design. Four of the city’s top architects stand out and have begun the fight over who is going to be granted the honor of redesigning New York’s main hub.

  • The Case for Moving Madison Square Garden By Aby Thomas | May 13, 2013

    On May 22, the Department of City Planning is going to vote on whether Madison Square Garden, one of New York City’s most iconic structures, should be given only 15 more years to operate from its current location over Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan. If the city’s commissioners give the green signal to this proposal, then that means that the “World’s Most Famous Arena” will probably soon have to find a new location to call as its home in the city.

  • Taking the Gloves Off: MSG and Penn Station By Thomas Faddegon | April 24, 2013

    Penn Station is about to burst at the rafters. It likely would have done so already, were it not for a certain 19,000-seat stadium sitting squarely on its head. Manhattan’s entire subway system is notorious for packed subway cars at rush hour, and commuters have learned to suspend any notion of personal space for the duration of their ride. Nevertheless, overcrowding at the famous NYC station has reached critical levels.

  • MTA To Raise New York Base Fare in March 2013 By Brittany Tenpenny | October 23, 2012

    Just last week, we reported on the MTA’s proposal to raise subway fares for commuters. MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota confirmed the plans on Monday, hinting that base fares might see an increase. This is bad news for Manhattan residents, a group that has endured a number of fare hikes in recent years. If the proposal passes, the change will go into effect March 1, 2013.
