"Grand Central v Penn" Amtrak Tip by johngayton
Amtrak, New York City: 22 reviews and 16 photos
Whilst Grand Central has been lovingly restored to its former glory, poor old Penn Station has been continuously deconstructed and is but a shadow its former self. In the early part of the 20th century Penn rivalled Central both in its functionality and grandeur. Now, despite recent work by Amtrak, Central is the tourist attraction whilst Penn comes out the winner in the functionality stakes.
Penn is now the main Amtrak terminus as well as the hub for the subway and commuter rail lines for both local and upstate destinations. Penn does have, in my opinion, the better bar though!!
Wikipedia has a really good page on Penn and Central along with useful links.
