It's supposed to, yes. But has anything actually happened yet? I'll believe it when I see it.

The facade is currently covered in scaffolding and protective covering, so I think something is finally happening.

Yep, scaffolding is up and ready, but did our Do-Nothing Congress actually appropriate the money to do it? That's my question.

I personally believe that the bathroom is nasty on 30th Station due to the fact that it is frequented by homeless people or people who are not supposed to be there in the first place.

Given that, afaik, the doors are not locked over night that's not surprising.

Hmmm I never thought about that.
But to fair, I am sure there are lots of commuters too who are there late. Especially those who take MEGA BUS / BOLT BUS and Amtrak / Acela.

That restroom is awful. The whole place is dank. The urinal area is dirty, and I often see puddles of "liquid" on the floor that is apparently overflow from the urinals. The urinals are too close together and could use privacy partitions. The toilet area borders on third world.

The food court, and particularly the passageway in the middle, couldn't be more unappealing.

Penn Station(NYC)'s restrooms have similar problems... well I only know about the womens' rooms.

As I said above the food court area was unused/abandoned for years and it looked a lot worse than now.
