Use this subway entrance to access the subway
You can enter the downtown platform from 87th st, SW corner.
$100 or so for unlimited subway and bus travel is actually a mighty fine deal. Just saying, you know....
The 86th St entrance is at the back of the uptown train and the front of the downtown train.
Watch out for the gross puddle of water at the foot of the stairs leading to the downtown tracks. Even with saved cash the MTA can't clean it up. Go figure!
As of June 13, 2013, there is AT&T 3G service on both platforms! Please talk quietly.
Wifi (plus annoying ads!!)!!
This station (and most of the other UWS b/c stops) now has free wifi! Connect to Boingo and pick "complimentary access".
When going uptown, stay at the front of the train to exit at 89th st.
