People tend to check in during these times:
Amtrak, NJ Transit Rail, and Newark Light Rail
If you're already here, don't bother reading the tips. It's too late for you.
Leave as quickly as possible.
Read the tips while waiting at Newark Penn.
The popcorn really is as good as it smells.
5-10 min. walk to Prudential Center indoors almost all the way - follow "Gateway Center" signs - you'll use a covered walkway to get across the street from the Pru Center - food and shops on the way
Catch your train!
Get on a train going to NYC.
Buy a ticket before catching the train
When boarding the train, please watch the gap!!
For double Decker trains you are more likely to find free seats upstairs. People are more inclined to go downstairs as opposed to up.
The other 115 tips are all way off. Inside it's like a beautiful candy wonderland. Kind of like that Katy Perry "California Girls" video. Lick the candy-cane floor and enjoy a free bottomless sundae.
If you're not on the platform and the screen says "All Aboard" don't assume you've missed your train!
NEVER drink from the water fountains. The homeless bathe in them.
Listen to music when your bored waiting for a train
Make lots of eye contact and brag about how many cigarettes you have.
Love watching the people who JUST missed the Path. Har har
That amazing smell you smell when you arrive is the pocorn vendor. You can find him right outside of the McDonald's on the ground floor. $1.50 for a huge bag of freeah popped corn.
Don't complain about the homeless people; just be grateful for what you have.
Can't go wrong at Zaros bakery
If you're looking to be eaten by someone on bath salts, you're in the right place.
stay clear of crazzy bums who walk like zombies (they bite)
Don't waste time asking NJ Transit why your train's delayed. The system is simply inexplicable.
Try not to breath if you have to use the men's room, or as I like to call it, my own personal version of hell.
There is a less known waiting room b/w tracks 3 & 4, locations 5/6. You can tell it's there by the fresh paint smell. No bums, no beggars. Great air conditioning.
Missed your train by thaaaat much? Pop over to the station liquor store, plenty of travel-size wine bottles, beer and the hard stuff to keep you company until your next train arrives 20 minutes late!
Wow. The people that leave tips about the homeless act as if they asked to.be here in this desperate state. Unless you're going to do something to help, kindly shut up!
If you smoke, try smoking in the back of the station or risk being bombarded for cigs.
Looks like a homeless shelter. When I complain, am told it's "a public space". Hmm.
Try to avoid the Men's room whenever one side is shut down for cleaning. It gets a bum overload and next thing you know you're rubbing elbows with two guys arguing over who can do their drugs in the s
If you enjoy the smell of wet dog kibble, you've come to the right place!
Stand back of the yellow line!! You never know who is behind you!!
Their is a man outside claims that he is stuck in Newark asking for money he does it almost every nite!
when getting pick up or dropped off tell your ride to get you in the back by the iron bound side of the station less traffic less waiting
Don't give the Hobos any money. Most of them just use it for drugs and/or alcohol.
Don't wait for your train in the waiting room at night. You'll be surrounded by drunk, smelly bums.
Cops on Segways? Really?
When going to west side of manhattan, always take NJtransit to penn station if there's a train in the next 20 min. way faster than PATH.
When the world ends, it will resemble this place. Minus the popcorn.
Can we do something about the obnoxious tips left by people who OBVIOUSLY have no clue what it is to have nothing...
Don't give anything to the beggers outside they will never leave u alone then I learned the hard way!!!
If you miss your on-time train by 2 minutes you can be sure that the next one will be 15 minutes late.
If you want to get to Philly fast and cheap try the Keystone train
Dunkin' Doughnuts is usually packed, but there's a Starbucks on the 2nd Floor! Follow the signs to "Gateway Ctr".
Beware of the overbearing popcorn caramelly odor!
The DepartureVis board is always wrong. You could spend a lot of time running from platform to platform missing trains for hours. No need to bring a totem - it's a guaranteed nightmare here.
Stand clear of the closing doors
Use the Amtrak waiting room instead of the platform level when waiting for your train. Beautiful!
McD's is closed..got a nice lil DD now. The ATM when work are usually crowded. Bums are out in force.
One of the WORST places on Earth.
Prepare to be asked for $ by a million people. Bring some lemon juice and when asked, give it to them and say it's to help prevent scurvies =D
