    There's cell service here, which is nice. And a little pro tip: if you catch the Brooklyn-bound Q here it's usually not crazy crowded.

    If you want the A/C/E -- get it from Port Authority. Otherwise you'll be walking all the way (back) there in horrendous underground conditions to catch your train.
