    Express trains to/from NYC and rental car companies across the street are the only things this place has going for it.

    Best advice is buy your ticket before you get on the train. The on-board prices are no joke.

    The Amtrak ticket counter is behind the Dunkin Donuts. There are no red caps here so have a friend who can help you get into the train if you need assistance.

    Not much good here. Delays, bad food, lots of people who think Vineyard Vines is high fashion. Take the train to Grand Central, and then go to Brooklyn.

    You better buy ur tickets in advance! Few side machines and it is almost the double of the regular price in the train.

    The trains to Grand Central arriving on Track 5 board on both sides. Look for the Express trains...two stops and your home. They are older trains but you are on them for a shorter time.

    Nothing has changed despite encouragement that there will be more trains by years' end. Off peak trains from Stamford are still running 5-10 minutes late. It's baffling.

    Ladies: be prepared, there are NO hooks on the doors in the restroom and barely enough space to shut the door if you have luggage. If you're traveling with a friend, ask them to hold your bags.

    Try to catch 1 of these cars, much better than the traditional 1's.. Also, don't wait until you're on the train to buy your ticket! It'll cost you 2 times as much as buying it at the station!

    The 8:16 AM to GCT is usually one of the brand new trains -- catch it if you can. 8 cars so plenty of seats, better lit, quieter and softer ride, much better seats.

    If going south during the evening rush, go on track 3 all the way up to the front of the train. More likely to get a seat that way.

    If you're going north, stand on the platform that has access to both tracks 2 and 4. That way you won't miss your train when they keep switching which track it's coming in on.
