New York City 

Getting In

By Train

Penn Station
Pennsylvania Station (commonly known as Penn Station) is the main intercity train terminal and a major commuter train hub in New York City. Amtrak owns the terminal, which is located at the underground levels of Pennsylvania Plaza, an urban complex (between Seventh and Eighth Avenues and between 31st and 33rd Streets) in Midtown Manhattan. Penn Station also serves commuter trains traveling to and from New York City, operated by the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) and New Jersey Transit.

You should have no problem getting a cab outside Penn Station, even in the late evenings especially during weekends. However, most cabs will only take passenger to destinations within Manhattan and not into the city’s outer boroughs. Six MTA subway routes in New York City serve Penn Station, connecting the station with other stations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and The Bronx. Penn Station is also served by several local MTA bus routes traveling north and south of the station.
