Re: Why NY Penn Station still sucks

Jersey commuters were expected to keep going to Jersey City or taking H&M (PATH), which is why their Newark terminal was moved from Park Place (NJPAC) to Newark Penn

Took 25 years to come up with the Newark connection, so there's a bit of a hole in that theory.

And most "Jersey commuters" were headed downtown anyway back then, so what would have been the point of sending them to midtown?

If not for NYC and their steam bans, Penn Station would have been located around Chambers Street instead, with the LIRR possibly going there too from the Atlantic Avenue line.
