I can't figure out why Cuomo decided to basically re-announce the Penn South component of Amtrak's Gateway plan and add another track. NY's love affair with enormously expensive stub terminals is totally irrational. With no new Hudson tunnel to serve it the entire plan is worse than worthless.

If you're going to spend a few billion bucks pick a NJT line or two to outfit with LIRR power and just dig a tunnel from Penn to the East Side Access so people can actually reach east midtown which is where they want to go. Through run the services on both sides of Manhattan to boost capacity.
