I packed snacks and lunch. The Amtrak terminal in Penn Station has only a combo Taco Bell/KFC/Häagen-Dazs/Pizza Hut/Nathan’s/Tim Hortan’s. With a TGI Friday’s elegant and healthy dining option. Westchester and Connecticut commuters who use stately Grand Central Terminal can get green juice and a radicchio Caesar salad.
I highly recommend taking the Hudson River line on Amtrak or Metro North. So beautiful.
