Moynihan Station is finally happening, the Port Authority says. Or at least part of it.

The $270 million project will roughly double the width and length of Penn Station’s western concourse, extending it southward to encompass New Jersey Transit and Amtrak tracks. It will also vastly improve access to the labyrinthine station, creating six new entrances, three at the southwest corner of 33rd Street and Eighth Avenue, and another three at 31st Street. The entrances will have escalators, elevators and stairs to the platforms.
Foye, himself a Long Island Railroad commuter, said what has been a “fairly dingy” commuter experience would now “be fit for humans.”
