Newark Penn Station

The subway portion of the line begins at Newark Penn Station -- surely a name from a different transportation era.  That station is an imposing building.  Both Amtrak and NJ Transit commuter trains call there, as does the PATH heavy rail service to Hoboken (with connections to Manhattan).  It is also a major bus point, for both local and long-distance routes. 

The tracks for the City Subway are a bit removed from the center of action.  The platforms have the feel of an older and more important time, a time when numerous other trolley routes also terminated there.
