Penn Station has a whole underground of stores and fast food-eateries. Clothing shops, souveniers, etc.
Some buses may stop outside/near Penn Station that go to Philly, PA or other places, like Mega Bus or Bolt Bus.
I believe these buses have free WIFI.

Lexington & Park Aves
Take Metro North Trains to Upstate NY
or to Connecticut and back. You may want to go here just as a tourist
and check out the ceilings and light fixtures of GCS, plus many chic food and gift stores.
MetroNorth Accessibility info is on the MTA website
NYCAirporter service shuttles you to your Manhattan hotel between 23rd St and 63rd which is free service from GSC only.
The NYCAirporter shuttles to/from JFK, Newark & LaGuardia Airports (for a fraction of what a cab will cost you). These shuttle buses are wheelchair accessible with a ramp that opens from the front entrance. Free WIFI. NYCAirporter
On very cold days, I like cutting through GCS. I go in
at 42nd st., across and up the escalator, through another
building to get to East 45th st. :-)
