On January 1, 2021, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo pointed with pride to the “achievement of delivering a major infrastructure project on time despite a pandemic”. The State of New York and its most populated City could transcend the Covid-29 virus within the walls of a new Hall and entertain “deeply hopeful perceptions or attitudes for the immediate future. As Governor Cuomo officially “opened the new Moynihan Train Hall” to those commuters and passengers arriving or leaving Penn Station, the Governor was thrilled to exclaim”
It speaks to the brighter days ahead when we will be able to congregate, to pass one another and to share the same space free of fear. It promises renewal and rebirth of civic life in New York, and points to the opportunity ahead.”
