    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.

    Look straight ahead and get where you're going!

    Try to avoid the crazy homeless man with bald head and beard that wants to ask u A question.

    The 4, 5, 6 trains are a block away.

    Yeah don't listen to Peter. It takes 10 minutes to get from 125th to 42nd on the Metro North. <3 @ Peter. + you avoid the crazies on the 4 and 5 train :D

    No lock on the men's room door. I would only use it for number one!

    Mike Donnarummo · August 11, 2011
  • Sun Y.

    Need to be careful at night

    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.

    AJ Borges · December 7, 2010

    Popeyes chicken and wait for s train

    Thomas R · November 2, 2010
  • Gabe D.

    Don't stop here if you're hungry. The Popeyes from downstairs is so fresh and tasty smelling!

    Gabe Dunn · August 17, 2010

    Avoid the gypsy cabs on 125th and pick up a yellow cab on the north end of the station.

    Todd Whitley · November 17, 2010
  • laura h.

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

    laura horak · July 21, 2010
  • Harlem A.

    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.

    Harlem Ambassador · June 4, 2013
  • Corey B.

    Don't arrive early expecting to find A/C in the waiting room. It's actually cooler outside on the platform than inside!

    Corey Briskin · July 6, 2010
  • Corey H.

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

    Corey Horob · April 14, 2010

    Avoid sitting with Fordham passengers. They like to talk on the phone in the wee hours of the morning.

    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.

  • Whit R.

    Much easier to leave here from the UES than Grand Central.

    Lots of bums hanging around

    Phoenix 💥💥💥 · September 9, 2014
  • Carlton W.

    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.

    Carlton W. · March 30, 2013
  • Becca M.

    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!

    Becca M · March 21, 2013
  • Heather R.

    Easier to get to from UES vs GC..especially in peak times

    Heather Reynolds · May 23, 2012

    El Barrio means .... no AC in waiting area

    The grand central trian is running 10 minutes behind schedule.

    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

    Going to see moms and pops in ct. Goes to brewster in 70 min. Always on time. Winter season sometimes disrupts the workflow

    Bathrooms are always out of order.

    Harlem hues..

  • Allison E.

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

    Allison Esposito · March 21, 2014
  • John G.

    All bathrooms out of order. Popeyes bathroom out of order too.

    John Gelbius · November 29, 2013

    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

  • Edmond F.

    even though it's more money i like to go and take it to manhattan because it's faster sorry 4,5,6,train

    Edmond Fernandez · April 15, 2012
  • Finny A.

    Don't listen to Peter! He's lame and is probably friends with the "pregnant" girl and crazy homeless guy

    Finny Akers · January 16, 2012
  • Eliza K.

    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!

    Eliza K · December 2, 2011

    Nothing but fast food surrounds you.

    It's a train station. They have trains.

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

    Roger Schonfeld · August 26, 2014

    Time to go home...

    Connect here to get to Yankee Stadium.

  • Jere K.

    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.

    Jere Keys · May 2, 2014

    This station has gotten more infested with mice over the years.
