Visited this place after nearly 20 years and found it quite the same. The station has definitely become modern with better amenities and technology. It gives you an opportunity to visit some of the most happening places in Manhattan.

Traveling Amtrak into or out of Penn Station is so much more pleasant than any airport experience. Amtrak has a dedicated waiting lounge for their passengers which always has plenty of available seating. The station and the lounge are clean, signage is large and easy to follow, and there are plenty of options for a snack or last minute souvenir.

If you travel by train from New York this is your place. Travelers have the opportunity to take even train for Canada. Plan your travel in advance - the station is huge and you will need time to orientate

I come in and out regularly on the Amtrak. The place is generally dirty and poorly organized, although no worse than many Parisian train stations I've passed through.The concourses are filled with vagrants who often spill into the food sellers, however, the station is heavily policed and seems safe despite its appearance. The Amtrak situation is perpetually screwed up since... More

There isn't much special about Penn station. It's a functional train station. It's like most other train station in Manhattan.

We stayed 5 nights and this was a very comfortable hotel. This hotel is away from Times Square but very accessible via the underground on the Blue A line train. Staff were very helpful and would recommend this hotel.

When I hear people complaining about Penn Station, I want to yell at them. For the number of people flowing through every day and the fact it services NJ Transit, LIRR and Amtrak (3 major lines), it's amazing they can handle things as well as they do. True there are crowds but these are orderly crowds and people generally know... More

The station is as busy as ever but more modern and cleaner than it was during the time I used this station during the 80s and 90s. Customer traing has not improved however. New York has moved on but pen station staff still have the attitude thing. I saw so many people frustratingly trying to get basic directions which were... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
