Renovations at Amtrak Penn Station Entrance Include LED Video Display

NEW YORK—As part of an extensive revitalization project at New York Penn Station, Amtrak and Vornado Realty Trust have transformed the rail station’s entrance at 32nd Street and 7th Avenue. It’s the busiest entrance to the busiest transit hub in the Western Hemisphere, which serves more than 600,000 passengers a day. The entrance enhancements include a 1.5 mm BRILLIANT™ Interior LED video screen from SNA Displays. Other upgrades include a widened entrance with new escalators, an ADA-compliant elevator, a new glass canopy, and exterior signage.

Travelers encounter the new LED screen at the bottom of the new escalators leading to various transit platforms. The bulkhead LED display measures 6’8″ high x 36’8″ wide (1,296 x 7,168 pixels) and processes approximately 9.3 million pixels.

“Busy and distracted commuters increasingly rely on dynamic and eye-catching digital signage to provide important information,” said Anne St. Mauro, vice president of project management at SNA Displays. “Heavily functional digital displays like this serve a critical role and can provide a much-needed service to some travelers.”

Forte Construction Group was the general contractor for the project and Digital Dreams provided installation services.
