    Best coffee - Au Bon Pain. Fastest moving line for water - the news stand. And buy your ticket/pass for local trains at the station; the onboard markup is significant.

    WARNING at commuter hours (5-7) if you aren't 'walking the escalators' then stay standing to the right so those rushing to make their connection can fly by! And this includes your luggage!!

    Take a late CR train ad they may scare you by announcing the wrong stops after you've boarded at last call.

    Try not to buy food here, you'll get ripped off as in most train stations. If you have time eat in Chinatown instead, it's right across the street and you'll get more for your money.

    Amtrak trains have got 120v power outlets as well as food (for sale) on board, so bring your computer and watch a movie.
