    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.

    Если вы поедете из аэропорта к станции Джамайка, то внимательно смотрите на монитор, так как к одной и той же платформе подходят два разных поезда. Один идет к Джамайке, а другой идет к Ховарду.

    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

    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.
