34th Street


The Pennsy Reopens

Food hall now features extended outdoor seating and new food vendors.


After a speedy, multi-million-dollar renovation by Vornado Realty Trust, The Pennsy is back and better than ever. The upscale food hall located above Penn Station and right next to Madison Square Garden and Plaza33, has reopened with a revamped lineup of food vendors, an expanded bar, and much more outdoor seating.

Returning vendors include Pat LaFriedaThe Little Beet, and Cinnamon Snail, joined by newcomers Taco DumboRibalta, and Sabi Sushi. The new bar, operated by HPH, features 48 taps of seasonally rotating beers, ciders, cocktails, and wines.

Once tailored for the grab-and-go crowd, The Pennsy now has expanded seating for those who want to stay. There’s 150 indoor seats, and 380 outside on a concourse directly overlooking Plaza33. The relaunch comes quickly after 34th Street finished a project to resurface Plaza33 and refurbish its wood furniture. With these improvements, office workers and shoppers now have an attractive and unified area to rest and refuel. Read more about The Pennsy at Eater New York and Crain’s New York Business
