A multibillion-dollar project to connect the Long Island Rail Road to Grand Central Terminal may have a nice side effect for people in New York City’s northern suburbs.
It might also make it possible for Metro-North trains to run directly into Penn Station.
The New York Post reports (http://nyp.st/tIocA8 ) that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority thinks its $7 billion project to allow LIRR trains to Grand Central will free up a lot of track space at Penn Station — maybe even enough so that Metro-North trains will finally be able to stop there too.
