What Do New Yorkers Really Think About Penn Station?

Last updated: Tuesday, December 22

As part of MAS’s continuing advocacy around the urgent need for a new Penn Station, we took our cameras into the eye of storm and asked real Penn Station commuters what they think about our city’s decrepit, overcrowded transit hub. Over the next two weeks, MAS will share a new video every day in which riders delve into the myriad ways the current Penn Station lets us down.

To kick off the series we have a supercut video that gives you a taste of what 600,000 riders experience every day inside the rabbit warren of Penn Station.
