    Avoid the temptation to go to street level for a smoke--it doesn't get much sleazier than here.

    Coming from the JFK? Have your mta card refilled beforehand or you will have to wait in line for a long time because of all the tourists.

    Don't be confused - they're two ways to get to platform 1! It's the same train ;)

    Fascinating to watch all the suburban lines converge here, and the commuters making a quick change depending on their terminal destination.

    Tracks 1 and 2 are always NYC, track 3 is always BK. Pay attention!

    The seat is not your personal bed, be mindful that other patrons paid for a ticket and have a right to a seat too.#rudeandnastypassengers

    Be wary of pooping pigeons overhead when sitting on any of the benches on the upper mezzanine of LIRR. 😖

    If you wanna use Air train service to JFK, fine. If you wanna use Q3 or Q6 Buses to JFK, Fine. But use AirTrain service. Less stops and more faster than the Q3 or Q6 Buses.

  • Brendan M.

    $0.99 water and sodas. Good for a hot day

    You can watch for the trains coming in from the upper platform, and avoid the crowd below

    Capt Awesome · June 27, 2014
  • Capt Awesome

    Try and get a good spot in front of the train doors before they open or you'll be run over by all the rude old women

    Your backpack/bag/purse does not need it's own seat!

    Adam Davis · September 28, 2013
  • Shay S.

    Buy your tickets ahead of time. They have closed the Windows and you have to buy your tickets upstairs which has a long line

    Doesn't ANYONE know how to read the platform signs?! That's why they are there!!!!! Stop getting on the train and shouting "which train goes to Babylon?!" So annoying!

    LIRR beers at the tracks are $2.50 for domestic and $3.50 for imported. We should be doing happy hour here.

    Wear headphones on the train because no one shuts up and music is the only way to tune them out

    Power outlets and USB power outlets can be found at the AirTrain Upper Concourse at 2 of the 3 trianglar shaped info kiosks.

    If you don't know how to use the ticket machines PLEASE go to the tellers downstairs or ask for help from the person behind you. Otherwise you will incur the wrath of people behind you.

    The heat lamps make me nice and warm..... And idly I feel like a roasted chicken being kept warm before serving.
