People tend to check in during these times:
Off to the mets game with dad!
One of the few stations where people don't come up to you and ask for a dollar.
When they have a delay in trains, its usually about thirty mins more. What do you do at a train station for 30 mins..
Newspaper stand over charges everything
Why fly when you can take the train
Have a coffee from the food wagon! Great food choices too!
If you are alone plug in your headphones and have some "you" time.
Don't wait out in the cold. Stay warm in the waiting room.
The newspaper stand had 5 Hour Energy Drinks.
If you're heading to Citi Field, park here and catch the LIRR to Mets - Willets Point. Much cheaper and faster than parking at the stadium.
The trains are never on time. They can run as little as 2-3 minutes late to 7-10 minutes late, on a regular schedule.
Don't stand in the rain without an umbrella....
Don't travel lirr when its raining, or snowing, or any weather other than sunny and dry... I've been stuck here SO MANY times
When returning to Manhasset, travel in a car toward the center of the train if you wish to take a taxi from the train station. The doors will open closer to the stairs; it's first come, first served.
Definitely pick up a Metro Card before you get into NYC and avoid potentially long lines.
Buy your ticket before you board or you will pay much more.
welcome to schlong island
Wait indoors when it's cold.
If I'm alone, I sit near the window with 2 seats next to me. There's a less likely chance of someone sitting right next to you.
