Travelers in Moynihan Train Hall

Governor Kathy Hochul announced that visitors arriving at Penn Station as well as New Yorkers coming in via commuter rail will soon be able to use a new connector that will link the Moynihan Train Hall with the Jacob J. Javits Convention Center and the High Line, which is a 1.45-mile-long (2.33 kilometer) elevated linear park, greenway, and rail trail.

Currently, those making the journey have to fight crowded sidewalks and traffic.  The new High Line Moynihan Connector will remedy that situation.

The plan calls for a new landscaped bridge that will extend from the High Line parallel to 30th Street from 10th Avenue eastward, past Dyer Avenue at the middle of the block between 9th and 10th Avenues, where it will connect to a northbound bridge terminating on 9th Avenue directly across from the Moynihan Train Hall.

The $50 million project, which will be a public-private partnership between Empire State Development, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Brookfield Properties Group and Friends of the High Line, will be completed by the Spring of 2023, the governor’s office said.
