    For those new to NYC, when doors open "in" to a building, they are IN doors, those that open "out" are OUT doors. Here Endeth the lesson. Please choose responsibly.

    Alleviate some pains of Penn Station. Pennsy, the new gourmet food hall above it, is coming in strong with a lineup of top chefs debuting fast casual concepts. Grab a bite before a long train ride! Read more

    Easiest access to the NJ Transit tracks is from the entrance at the corner of 31st and 7th.

    NJT Tips to save a life: use Departure Vision on your phone to see if your track's announced, use the Amtrak 8th Ave side if it's crazy busy, and if there are delays: PATH it to Hoboken, don't wait.

    Staff and service always 5 star!!!!!!!!!!

    Located on 33rd between the 7th & 8th layers of hell. This place is so disorganized, the worst.

    If you're catching a flight in Newark, get on the NJ Transit line towards Trenton. Keep your ticket for the scanners on the AirTrain gates at the airport.

    I really like this place! There are so many food and drink options and its located near the heart of Manhattan. Public restrooms are pretty clean, all things considered.

    Pass the time by guessing if the drunk guy screaming on the concourse is just insane or a Knicks fan.

    Headed to Newark airport? Get your ticket from the NJ Transit machines, NOT the Amtrak machines. Look for EWR on the departures board to find your platform.

    This place needs an update badly.

    Score some packaged kosher Fresko meals at Jamba Juice- LIRR level (Star-K, $5-10)

    True fact: housed in a complex that's *literally* shaped like a toilet.

    Built using the "Mall in a questionable neighborhood" style that was so popular in the 60s.

    Mad Max is a documentary about this place during rush hour.

    NY Penn Station famously does not announce tracks until minutes before departure. Skip frantic chaos by requesting redcap service. Redcap will seat you 10 minutes before track is publicly announced!

    If misery loves company, this is where they hold the annual convention.

    If traveling by Amtrak, use the train entrance at 31st & 8th or 33rd & 8th.

    In a rush to catch an afternoon train? Citi Bike valet service is available Mon-Fri from 3-7pm at 8th Ave and W 31st St for stress-free docking.

    Don't wash the clothing you wear here, per CDC guidelines it must be burned.

    I'd rather spend all day in Times Square than 10 minutes in this disgusting shit hole

    First time riding on Amtrak and I actually am looking forward to go on it again! Gonna get a roomette or a super liner next time! Comfy seats and plenty of leg room!

    don't go here late at night

    Though most of the time it's quite busy, overall a easy way to commute to different places all over, which is a good thing. Most trains (LIRR) are on time and plenty of cops and national guard 2 help.

    Like being in an episode of The Walking Dead late night.

    The LIRR is so much better setup than NJ Transit.

    Gabriel Hayes · April 13, 2015
  • Mikey D.

    The LIRR wing's got the goods: Starbucks, Jamba Juice, Red Mango, and even a Kmart.

    Absolute horror show at all times.

    Waiting area is a little hot. With no train status display

    This place is a hell hole past 1 am. Sad.

    On a rainy, summer day, the leaky IRT platform is a great place for a quick shower.

    Get in and get out.

    Lindsey Kim · March 30, 2015

    Just a shell of what it used to be.

    This place is hell. At least they sell cheap beer.

    Allison Kasic · March 22, 2015
  • sabler

    No one actually checks your ticket at the LIRR waiting room, so loiter with your bagged beer that isn't fooling anyone all you like.

    This place is hell on earth.

    You've gotta be aggressive walking through here or you'll get trampled over!
