NEW YORK - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is pressing the restart button on the long-sought overhaul of Penn Station.
He announced Wednesday that a request for proposals from developers would go out this week. The project would include improvements like bringing in natural light to what's currently a dark, poorly signed, congested maze underneath Madison Square Garden.
Penn Station is the nation's busiest train station, with more than 650,000 passengers daily on three rail lines. Plans to overhaul it have been in process for decades, including efforts to connect it via underground passages to a redeveloped postal office across the street to improve passenger access.

The postal office project has had developers attached to it for a decade. It's unclear whether Cuomo's proposal means that agreement has been severed.
