About Friends of Moynihan Station

The Friends of Moynihan Station is a coalition of leading civic organizations, business groups and elected officials, joined in advocating the construction of a grand new train station on the site of the existing Penn Station and Post Office Building.

The group was founded by Maura Moynihan, the daughter the late Senator Pat Moynihan, in 2005. It is co-chaired by Regional Plan Association President Bob Yaro, Municipal Art Society President Vin Cipolla, New York Landmarks Conservancy President Peg Breen, General Contractors Association Director External Affairs Felice Farber, and CB4 Land Use Chair Anna Levin.

In 2007, we adopted a set of Principles that we believe the City, State and transit agencies should follow as they oversee the project.
