Well worth it in my opinion.


Thanks! I just moved here about 1 month ago, so I have no clue... I was planning on taking the subway, but this train sounds much better...

Enjoy the game if you're rooting for the Mets.

Take the 7

If you live on the UES, getting to the LIRR is a pain.
Take the 4,5,or 6 train to 42nd Street. Then take the 7 train queensbound. Leaves you right there.

it'll run express when you go, most likely not when you leave because it'll be 10-11.

I think it's going...

I'll be wearing a Yanks hat, but I bet the over, so I'm rooting for runs...

6 to the 7 takes about 54 minutes...

I work around Penn, so I'll be using that train in the future... Subway tonight, maybe cab back?

212 area code? I was curious so I tried calling... no answer, no voicemail


Seriously?


Not really, but I did call it...


Not much of a music fan, are you?

FYI, its blue skies and sun in NYC now.
