Moynihan Train Hall

Major construction is underway on the former James A. Farley Building in Manhattan to create Moynihan Train Hall — a state-of-the-art, 225,000-square-foot transportation hub for Long Island Rail Road and Amtrak passengers with an additional 700,000 square feet of commercial, retail, and dining space. Over the span of two decades, AKRF has participated in planning and approvals for Moynihan Train Hall from its earliest concept planning through complex NEPA and SEQRA analysis and documentation. Our historians assisted with the federally required coordination process pursuant to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and helped draft a programmatic agreement to avoid potential historic resource impacts from the proposed project.
