SOM expands new york’s penn station with brightly lit moynihan train hall

SOM has completed the moynihan train hall in new york, a project that expands the city’s pennsylvania station complex with a new 486,000-square-foot (45,150 sqm) hub. located within landmark james a. farley post office building, the ‘daniel patrick moynihan train hall’ is named for the US senator who originally proposed the project in the 1990s. the design brings light to the station’s concourses for the first time in more than 50 years, increases total concourse space by 50%, and restores the grandeur that was lost with the demolition of the original penn station half a century ago.
