One of or readers for some reason has fond memories of Penn station, and asked for some pictures.
Why, we don’t know. Penn Station has the charming habit of only announcing the track and opening the doors to the track 5 minutes before departure. This forces the commuters to have to fight just to be able to board before the train leaves.
It is a ridiculous system since the train is on the track far in advance. The system could easily be changed to allow allow people a more leisurely and civilized start to their commute home. Still, the pushing and shoving is just a time-honored part of the full New York experience.
