    Convenient way to get to Stamford or NYC. It's important to line up early if you want a good seat.

    If traveling by train, watch one of the monitors from outside the station - you'll get ahead of the rush when your track is announced.

    A big atrium ceiling makes it feel grander than you'd expect. Starbucks right there. Good seating. Easy view of screens and tracks. Great natural lighting.

    Busy place but has a great selection of shops to kill time. Remember to keep moving through and not stop in the middle of the platform or train

    Not very informative. You kinda have to know what you're doing. All the trains leave from downstairs and tou wait in the lounge to be called by a red cap. Tip $1 per bag.

    Buy your commuter rail pass/tickets on the smartphone app. It's cheaper and more convenient as they don't accept cash on the trains.

    If you're coming up from the subway and don't need the trains, just get aboveground ASAP and figure out where you are after
