    The platforms look like they're going to collapse in places, but don't worry--they've looked that way for 10+ years.

    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

    Don't wait for your train in the waiting room at night. You'll be surrounded by drunk, smelly bums.

    NJ Transit connection plans are unrealistic during rush hour crowds. Plan for having to wait for the next train.

    If you don't like the station, and want to get out a.s.a.p. Then go to your train or bus stop, wait for you train or bus to show up and leave! No one on here cares about you bitching and moaning!!

    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 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.
