    The lines to buy tickets during rush hours are extremely long. Either plan in advance or be prepared to buy aboard the train for a slight premium (beats missing your train!)

    Use the light green MTA ticket machines to get a $5 MetroCard and a LIRR ticket on exit. Better than being forced to spring for a $25 MetroCard at the other machines if you don't need it!

    Nothings changed here, manners are still quite absent, but doesn't mean you have to follow that group. #mannerscount #Lirr #postworkcommute

    Beer carts on track 8 make riding the Oyster Bay line a bit more bearable 🍺

    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.

    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. 😖

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

    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

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

    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
