Across from Penn Station. Club Acela is moving there. Scheduled to open in 2021.

"Amtrak’s Metropolitan Lounge will be offered only to Acela First Class or sleeping car passengers, as well as Amtrak Guest Rewards Select Plus and Select Executive members."

The drawings may not be as glorious as Grand Central, but the Moynihan will be a tremendous improvement over the existing facilities at Penn Station.

Richard, thanks for posting. Wow, if they pull this off it will be a huge improvement. Do you know how the platforms will be accessed?

Mr. Palmland, it appears directly from the Train Hall.

Or at least that is what the propagandist wants us to believe.

Here is a slideshow which might give a little better idea of the building layout:

Looks good, I guess the stairs/escalator s to the tracks are new but it still accesses the same platforms, just a little farther from the present stairs with no real change in the tracks.
