Hotels in New York near Penn Station

Penn Station Introduction

New York City's main intercity railroad station is in a prime Midtown location underneath Madison Square Garden. Penn Station, also known as Pennsylvania Station, was built in 1910 and has since become the Western Hemisphere's busiest transportation facility. More than 600,000 passengers a day stream through this cavernous underground station between Seventh and Eighth Avenues. When the original 1910 above-ground terminal was demolished in 1963 after years of decline, it caused huge outrage, as the ornate marble structure was considered a historic landmark. It was partly because of this that a movement was launched to preserve the country's historic architecture.
