    There are tons of beggars here. Please do us all a favor and say no to them all. The pregnant woman has been "pregnant" for 2 years, my friend.

    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.

    grab the #4 subway down the block to make it to the upper east side (86th & lex) in 10-15 mins

    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 arrive early expecting to find A/C in the waiting room. It's actually cooler outside on the platform than inside!

    If you need a ticket, be sure to show up a good 10 minutes beforehand. Lines can be long.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
