Walking past the construction site Monday, I saw that a door was open, allowing me to see and photograph (with cell phone camera) the empty space where a staircase once was, and where an additional escalator will hopefully soon be.
Then, that evening, I saw an escalator being delivered to Penn Station. As you can see in the photo above, not only is the old staircase gone, but the old escalator is gone too. So I’m not sure if this delivery is of a new escalator, or maybe of the old, but possibly refurbished, escalator. In any event, hopefully this moves the project along. I’m getting tired of wincing every time I see people struggling to carry large suitcases down the stairs (when there are clear signs pointing to other entrances with escalators).
DO YOU KNOW IF THE ESCALATOR FROM STREET LEVEL TO THE AMTRAK OFFICE IS OPERATIONAL AS OF THIS DATE i.e. 11/21/09?
Jasmine, I know that it was working on Friday.
