People tend to check in during these times:
MNR APP - If you are going to ride Metro North this is a must have. http://apple.co/1OgvMnk
Further to lines on holidays. Eventually lines do long, missed my train, but got to ride free.
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.
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.
It's a train station. They have trains.
So great to catch the MNR in my neighborhood!
Lots of bums hanging around
Such a convenient option if you live uptown. Good bus connection to the UWS via M60.
Time to go home...
Connect here to get to Yankee Stadium.
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.
There are no ticket machines on the platform so make sure to buy your tickets downstairs to save time (and an elevator ride).
All bathrooms out of order. Popeyes bathroom out of order too.
Why is grand central air conditioned and this station isn't???
Trains stop here and it's useless.
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.
Don't expect a clean rodent free station.
hoppy Easter peoples!
don't mess with the subways on the weekend if you can afford to pay triple for MetroNorth!
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.
On every metro north train from GCT to NH... "Express to New Haven; First stop, Stamford." LIES!! First stop is Harlem 125th!
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!
It's a haven for the homeless and the panhandlers..
Train on time!
Trains running pithily
Avoid sitting with Fordham passengers. They like to talk on the phone in the wee hours of the morning.
Buy the 10 ride pass online and you will save over 10% for off-peak trips.
There's a popeyes next to the train station which is the best thing in the world probably. also sometimes the bathrooms are usable and other times they r def not
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.
Popeye's Chicken and Biscuits
The grand central trian is running 10 minutes behind schedule.
Easier to get to from UES vs GC..especially in peak times
Much easier to leave here from the UES than Grand Central.
even though it's more money i like to go and take it to manhattan because it's faster sorry 4,5,6,train
If you are using a bike, get a permit at the window.
Ignore the loudmouthed folks it's the quiet ones you gotta worry about
Don t you think they could open more than one checkout the first day of the month?
Deli grocery to get a beer while you wait.
Going to see moms and pops in ct. Goes to brewster in 70 min. Always on time. Winter season sometimes disrupts the workflow
Its always dirty here. But I switch to 4, 5, 6 train here and I take the metro north commuter rail to CT.
Omg I love that people post photos of "sleepers"...
Vending machine on track 3 is broke!
Don't listen to Peter! He's lame and is probably friends with the "pregnant" girl and crazy homeless guy
Monthly ticket for metro north is now $417.
Want to avoid the drama on the 4 take this train
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!
Smells like weed!
