There are two things most commuters don’t realize about Penn station history: First, there used to be a gorgeous Beaux Arts station that was demolished in the mid-60’s. Second: Parts of that old station can still be found today. They’ve just been buried under the arena that landed on top of them. Although Amtrak only acknowledges one remnant remaining, tour participants will learn about station history and discover over a dozen remnants of the McKim, Mead & White building hiding in plain sight. Penn Station tours will continue to be supported by photographic presentations of the station by renown photographers Norman McGrath, Peter Moore, and Aaron Rose, along with the work of railroad aficionados Alexander Hatos, an employee of Pennsylvania Railroad and Ron Ziel, a railroad historian. - Discover the past, present and future of Penn Station, including the newly opened Moynihan Station - See over a dozen indoor and outdoor old-station remnants hidden in plain sight - Learn insider navigation tips for one of the most cramped and complicated transit hubs in North America - See never-before-seen old station photos from the collections of three photographers who photo documented Penn’s life and demolition Receive a framable, reproduction ticket of the first commuter ride into Pennsylvania Station from 1910
