Re: The Most Awful Transit Center in America Could Get Unimaginably Worse

What was at the site of the present NJT concourse before that was built?

Good question. Prior to the building of that concourse, which I think is 1-1/2 levels down, I have walked west from the south end of the 2/3, 1 level below the subway and therefore 2 levels below the street. It was a deserted corridor with solid walls and maybe some locked doors to the left. Eventually (about mid-block) a passageway to the LIRR concourse went off to the right. That implies that much of the southeast quadrant of Penn Station, 2 levels down, was off limits to passengers. Probably used for railroad purposes. I never felt that corridor would be particularly safe outside of rush hour.
