    If you ever feel nostalgic about NYC circa 1973, take a swing by the McDonalds at Penn Station, Newark. Vagrants, pan handlers, doped out beatniks passing out in the stalls. Beautiful.

    Newark Penn station is a wonderful place if you enjoy surly service, bad food, bland architecture and a steady stream of vagrants soliciting money from travelers.

    There's almost absolutely no way of getting in and out of here without being asked for change. If you're too kind-hearted, walk fast & "don't speak English."

    Sketchy homeless people and beggars lingering about. Donate at your own risk. The liquor store is sometimes a godsend, sometimes a potential explanation of the crazy you'll see. Enjoy!

    The signage can be misleading, so you might end up on the wrong side of the street. Take a few minutes to look over the station map.

    NJ transit trains have power outlets behind the seats immediately next to the stair case (only one side of the aisle), and below one of the corner seats in the in-between handicap seating areas.

    If you find yourself with over 30 minute wait for a train after 7pm- head over to the market restaurant by the Hilton. Decent food, bar and you can park there for a bit.

    To get to Prudential at Broad St, walk through the Gateway Center (and then two blocks down Clinton St for a total stroll of around a half mile) or take the subway/light rail to Military Park.

    If you see "All Aboard" signs and no train on the platform, chances are, the train crew forgot to turn OFF the train's stealth mode. Do not attempt to board the train till the stealth mode is OFF.
