Moynihan Train Hall, the monumental civic project that converted the James A. Farley Post Office in New York City into an extension to Penn Station, has been named to the 2020/2021 World Architecture Festival Awards shortlist. The project was recognized in the Transport: Completed Buildings category.

Situated across Eighth Avenue from Pennsylvania Station, the Moynihan Train Hall is a critical part of a redevelopment of the entire Penn Station complex. It anchors the burgeoning development of Manhattan’s Far West Side—creating a public space that offers a tangible link to New York’s grand history while adding much-needed capacity to the region’s rail system.
