Philadelphia’s Philaadelphia sightseekers have waited a long time for the new Penn Station.
The long wait is over.
The new station opened this week and is expected to become a major tourist destination, as well as a landmark in the city.
The city’s mayor announced the news Monday.
“This is going to be a big event for the city,” Mayor Jim Kenney said.
“We’re thrilled that we’re going to get this beautiful, iconic facility up and running in the near future.”
In fact, it took the mayor and Philadelphia’s mayor-elect, Ras Baraka, nearly four years to get the station built.
“It took a lot of guts, a lot, a long, long process,” Baraka said.
This will be the biggest public transportation project in the history of Philadelphia, Baraka added.
“I’m so happy that we finally have this station.
But for now, people who are coming to the city to see the new train station have a lot to wait. “
And it will help our residents in our neighborhoods, our businesses, our visitors,” he said.

“Penn Station is in the planning stage,” Kenney explained.
“The mayor is doing the permitting.
I know the construction team, I know construction is going on.
I can do the work now.” “
If I can get a permit, we can do construction right now.
I can do the work now.”
The station opened on Sept. 5, 2016, and it was scheduled to open in 2019.
Now, construction on the station is taking longer than expected.
“But this is an exciting time for Philadelphia,” Barakas said.
He pointed to the train station’s proximity to the airport and the city’s rail network as a benefit to the region.
Kenney and Baraka are both Republicans. “
So the Penn is going into our neighborhoods,” Barakis added.

They have said they’ll continue to work with the federal government and the state government to ensure that Philadelphia gets its train station.
But the Penn station will take time to get going, and there’s no guarantee the station will be ready in time for people to travel.
“There is a lot that needs to be done,” Baraskas said of the project.
“Now is not the time to be looking ahead.
It is the time for a long-term, sustainable and successful investment for the region.”
The new Penn station was part of a $1.4 billion investment by the city of Philadelphia and the Penn Corporation, a subsidiary of Amtrak, to make the city a more transit-oriented city.
It will include a pedestrian-friendly station with a walkable bike path, a new escalator, and new bike racks and signage.
The Penn Corporation also agreed to invest in public transportation, including the $500 million Transit City station.
The station also includes new elevators and escalators.
It also includes a new bike rack, and a new pedestrian plaza with a walking path and a cafe.
The project is part of the city and state’s efforts to revitalize the city by providing an alternative to driving, which is a major driver of congestion.
“To help people get to their jobs, their shopping, and their dining, we need to have a better transportation network,” Kensey said.
The train station will cost about $900 million.
It has been estimated that the project will be finished by 2027.
“My focus is going be on the people who live here and who work here,” Kenya said.
Kenya and Barakass are both looking forward to seeing the station open.
“For me, the thing that really excites me is the people and the people in Philadelphia,” Kenay said.
“I’m going to see it in my lifetime, but I’m going, ‘Oh, I hope they’re really happy with it.’
That’s the fun part.”
