People tend to check in during these times:
On the platform: if the station is on your right, you're facing NYC (west).
The trains are chill. Would ride again y'all. Would ride again.
no benches outside while you wait for train
Just not the same since they replaced the analog schedule board
It's easy to find. The Metro-North ticket vendor also Metro Cards for the Subway.
Hasta la vista baby! 😍
Give yourself some extra time to take in this historic station.
Main station is distinctive, but two Dunkins and Sbarro? Really?
It's union station lol what tip you need
The easiest way to commute to NYC. I drive here from Boston.
there's a subway dunkin donuts and something else just your average chain restaurants
Lovely old train station. There aren't a lot of food options- Subway, Sbarro, and Dunkin Donuts but free wifi is great!
Gorgeous tunnel from the trains to the station. Odd to find a modern tunnel under such a historic building and there doesn't seem to be any architectural connection but I love the tunnel regardless...
#Amtrak trains usually get in about 1-2 minutes after Metro North trains depart so if trying to save a few bucks, expect to wait an hour or so to catch the next one. There are @Amtrak red caps here.
The train station scene from Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (bollywood movie) was taped here
Clean, bright, nice surroundings
The main is Metro-North to NYC!
Well that's new
Quaint and beautiful
Pay no mind to the countless TV monitors that have yet to be put to use after sitting for years
Gorgeous historically significant waiting room, lovingly restored. Take a moment to look at the model trains displayed thoughout.
Go to the downstairs dunkin, not the upstairs one
First leg #chitown
Make sure you have money.
Stay away from the Union News newsstand. They'll sneak in an extra charge to use your debit/credit card and not tell you. Not cool.
If you see am outlet on the train, do not charge your electronics because the current surges and is likely to damage your equipment - do t be tempted!
Amtrak almost always comes in on track 1
Great architecture and history
If ride in on the Shoreline East & are switching to the Metro North to New York, hold onto your Shoreline East Receipt-it allows you to pay cash on the Metro North train w/o having to pay the penalty
Creepy lighting, great benchez
One of the most architecturally pleasing small train stations you'll find
The new style trains have outlets at every seat.
Where the engine changes from electric to diesel!!
The ticket people could be friendlier.
New metro north trains are pretty spiffy looking and have plugs next I every seat! Score!
Plenty of parking adjacent to station.
When you're connecting from Shoreline East, make sure you have cash to pay for your Metro North ticket on board. I had to run to buy my ticket inside and barely made my "connecting" train.
Great station. Plenty of seating, decent food options in a pinch...nothing fancy, though.
The new trains are comfortable and have power to charge your dying cell phones.
Look for the free Green Shuttle outside the station leaving every 20 min to the downtown Green
Don't know if it was just me but the mta website showed the last train from union station to grand central at 550pm! Get to the station and the schedule board showed later trains. Wtf!
Hot damn. Be sure to leave enough time before your train to buy tickets in the station. $22 on board off peak to grand central. Cash only!
Used my iPhone passbook app today and it scanned perfectly on quick track, told me that my boarding pass was fine. Then it scanned for the conductor checking tickets. Such a hassle-free way to travel!
If you smoke outside, please sstep away from the doors. Some folks passing by would rather not smoke.
You pay the same price for an old train that is filthy and coated in scum that they obviously stopped cleaning months ago. Schedule doesn't tell you if train is old or new.
The smell of Subway diffuses into the main hall of the train station and makes the entire building smell like rotten lettuce. Sit as far away as possible—after you grab a sugar cookie, of course.
The train models on the benches are pretty neat.
Dunkin Donuts has free WiFi!
Haven't seen the drag queen in platform shoes in a while.
