amNY has an article about how Penn Station New York is still a terrible transportation hub for riders/pedestrians to navigate. While there’s no new information in the article, it is good that this topic is still being brought up by the media.

It’s never a good thing to see “Suspended” listed as the “Current Service Status” for a subway line.
