I strongly dislike the Hudson Terminal plans since it just creates another very expensive single user stub terminal in a place we should not be building them.

Bore a new two track tunnel from the Hoboken Terminal to the tail tracks of the ESA. This would provide Amtrak redundancy for NEC service between Newark and Sunnyside for when things go awry at Penn. NJT gets midtown west access. Find something to give LIRR for the trouble that costs less than a new terminal in Manhattan. Treat the ESA as a fully thru running station. Yes rolling stock traction power compatibility is an issue but that's much more cheaply resolved than billions for a new station that will take 15 years to happen.
