 Pennsylvania Station is one of New York City's main rail hubs, linking Amtrak, Long Island Rail, New Jersey's PATH train and the New York City Subway in a grotty, steaming hellhole of a building that houses numerous fast food outlets and also served for many years as unofficial homeless shelter.  When the red line subway stops there and the doors open (34th Street Station), the smell is overwhelmingly of donuts.


Some people are calling for a new station.
