Amtrak, a passenger railroad service that provides medium and long-distance intercity service in the contiguous United States, has recently unveiled its reinvented New York City home, which is named as the Moynihan Train Hall near the 100-plus-year-old James A. Farley Post office building across the Penn Station. This all-new station has a spectacular space and innovative design. It is a part of the reinvention of the rail line.

This project is made with a whopping budget of $1.6 billion and has transformed the facility into a modern, world-class transit hub. This idea was first proposed by the late US Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan more than a quarter-century ago. Thereby, the place is named after him. The hall is the home to the long island railroad that boasts a premium metropolitan lounge, equivalent to a first-class airline lounge with significant art installations.

The metropolitan lounge is available for passengers in Acela first class, sleeping class, and select and select executive members of the Amtrak Guest Rewards loyalty program. During the pandemic, the line saw a fall in the traffic, but now the line is 35 percent normal. It has seen the growing popularity of sleeping cars, and as a result, Amtrak has added sleeper cars to its all-new reinvention transit hub for the first time.
