About the tour

In 1963, New York City lost one of its most treasured buildings, New York Pennsylvania Station. For over 5 decades, New York welcomed visitors by train in a grand and opulent manner. The original Penn Station was demolished to make way for a new train station as well as the Madison Square Garden complex. For most New Yorkers, what succeeded the original structure has always been a bit of an eyesore...until now! Journey with us as we show you remnants of the original Penn Station, its replacement, and the brand new version, Moynihan Hall at Penn Station which promises an exciting train station of the future. If you want to see why this new station has New Yorkers excited, come join us. Climb aboard the Penn Station Express!
