    Don't be an a**hole. Standing on the stairs or at the top of the stairs causes an annoying bottleneck. Wait for your train in the ground floor lobby or walk all the way onto the platform.

    If you live in the upper east side, it's much easier to get on the train here rather than GCT. Plus, you're cutting 10 minutes off your commute!

    If your arriving from the north, go to the last few cars, you'll be closer to the exit that's open all times. Stairs on the S.Bound side of 125 are typically locked late night and weekends.

    If you're traveling on a holiday (Thanksgiving or Christmas in particular) make sure you get there early enough to buy a ticket. Even the lines for the machines are super long.

    If the ticket station when you walk in has a line, walk down 20 feet and you'll see four others. Also a great view of East Harlem from the platform.

    Harlem's version of Grand Central Station is a convergence of upper east side and Westchester county, it's a wonder that they can't keep the riff raff at bay outside of this waiting area. Convenient.

    When you need a peak/off peak round trip ticket on one ticket-skip the machines,and head to the ticket window (and you'll make em smile if you pay w/exact change)

    There are no ticket machines on the platform so make sure to buy your tickets downstairs to save time (and an elevator ride).

    Such a convenient option if you live uptown. Good bus connection to the UWS via M60.

    This station can really be a blessing or a curse. Below the station is A verity of food and shops and access to the 4 5 & 6 lines. Just to get off the train too late at night.

    Trains to Grand Central are generally on Tracks 2 and 4, trains to New Haven, Stamford, Wassaic, North White Plains, and Southeast on Track 3, and trains to Croton and Poughkeepsie on Track 1.

    Q&N is a good place to avoid fast food. Good create your own salad in the back of the store and not too expensive!

    If you're traveling in the city and need to get there fast, buy a cityticket and you'll save a few bucks.

    The line for ticket can be annoying. Show up 10 minutes earlier. During the night feels a little weird because all you see are crack heads and bums. Much faster than 42nd street.

    If you're headed downtown (Union Square or below), you might want to get off here and take the 4/5 subway instead of making the transfer at Grand Central.

    It's easier to get off here than to get off at Grand Central. 4,5,6 is a block away. 2,3 is three blocks away. Less people. No crowds. Faster.
