    Lots of transit options - NJ Transit Trains & Buses, Amtrak, PATH, Greyhound, Taxis, and Uber picks up here also. Busy station!

    Please, please do something about the large homeless population occupying this station early in the morning. It's unnerving an unnecessary.

    If you ever feel nostalgic about NYC circa 1973, take a swing by the McDonalds at Penn Station, Newark. Vagrants, pan handlers, doped out beatniks passing out in the stalls. Beautiful.

    Newark Penn station is a wonderful place if you enjoy surly service, bad food, bland architecture and a steady stream of vagrants soliciting money from travelers.

    There's almost absolutely no way of getting in and out of here without being asked for change. If you're too kind-hearted, walk fast & "don't speak English."

    Sketchy homeless people and beggars lingering about. Donate at your own risk. The liquor store is sometimes a godsend, sometimes a potential explanation of the crazy you'll see. Enjoy!

    The signage can be misleading, so you might end up on the wrong side of the street. Take a few minutes to look over the station map.

    A bit outdated, but a very serviceable station. Waiting area smells a bit. I recommend going to the Gateway Center to kill some time.

    Busy place. Not the most fun place to hang out, but serves as a suitable transit station.

    The popcorn is delicious, freshly popped, and only $1.50 per bag. Get some and enjoy the tips while you wait for your train.

    NJ transit trains have power outlets behind the seats immediately next to the stair case (only one side of the aisle), and below one of the corner seats in the in-between handicap seating areas.

    Worst cell signals in the world and unless you wanna sit w hobos, the only place to sit is McDonald's (where there are also hobos). Only good thing is the hilarious guys at the amtrak ticket stand

    If you find yourself with over 30 minute wait for a train after 7pm- head over to the market restaurant by the Hilton. Decent food, bar and you can park there for a bit.

    Keep an eye on the monitors for track information. Sometimes trains change tracks <5 minutes before they arrive.

    I did so much travelling through here going from photo shoots to writing sessions to performances and appearances. My fave place to eat here is the pizza shop near Track 1. Check the popcorn guy out!
