SOM had a leading role in the design of the monumental civic project to convert McKim, Mead & White’s 1913 Beaux-Arts James A. Farley Post Office into a 21st-century train station. Situated across Eighth Avenue from Pennsylvania Station, the new Daniel Patrick Moynihan Train Hall is a critical part of a redevelopment of the entire Penn Station complex. It anchors the burgeoning development of Manhattan’s Far West Side—creating a public space that offers a tangible link to New York’s grand history while adding much-needed capacity to the region’s rail system.
