New York City's suburban commuters are bracing for the start next week of what has been called the 'summer of hell' as the United States' busiest train hub partly shuts down for extensive track repairs. The work at Pennsylvania Station is due to begin Monday and run through Sept. 1, leaving the roughly 600,000 commuters who arrive there each morning from New Jersey and Long Island scrambling for alternate ways into the city.

Get de Blasio on the phone. He feels your pain.
Isn’t every summer in NYC hell?
Yep.....let the slimey RATs suffer
If one lives in the ‘burbs summer is great because Manhattan gets abandoned for weekends so great time to go in.
Don’t forget to dial international...
Look at this, can you believe this? This is what they voted into the city council.........
I am sure many of these 600,000 commuters will not mind seeing how comrade Bill is on top of the climate change crisis
These bonds were long ago paid off. The bridge is now a cash-cow that supports the "Metropolitan Transportation Authority," which somehow took over the bridges under Mayor John Lindsey so he wouldn't have to raise the cost of a subway token again. But probably most of the money has been diverted into the hands of the politicians who live in more and bigger McMansions. It certainly hasn't helped the motorists who use the bridges.
“Get de Blasio on the phone. He feels your pain.”........
I thought that bozo was in Germany protesting the G-20 conferences.
A number of cities like to “close off” access for those who live nearby but want to work or visit “in the city”.
In Houston, those who live outside of The Loop are still taxed to support all of that infrastructure “in the city” but they are actively discouraged from venturing in by a hostile city council (and mayoral candidates).
But that “Loop” is bisected by an interstate highway that stretches from California to Florida. And those on the city council scoff at doing anything to permit more east bound traffic getting “inside” the loop (even though plenty of shipping trucks aren’t stopping in the city).
If they are making you pay $17 in tolls, it’s out of spite.
” Voters insist on having a blatant hardcore commie anarchist as Mayor, a city council that is so far left that they held an “Ethel Rosenberg day” celebrating her for “great bravery”
Off topic - none of whom you mention has ANYTHING to do with running Amtrak, and it is Amtrak that owns and operates Penn Station. The problems in Penn Station are not the problem of them MTA, or the governments of NY State or New York City.
Wait a bit and then just proclaim Penn Station the BEST STATION in the world.......and, voila.
And spring, fall and winter too.
