Is anyone out there in Gotham land just a little frustrated with their LIRR commute (like me)? I think I’m lucky – and even I am complaining.
For years, our office was on the east side and I watched as construction tore up the streets to bring a shiny new terminal for the LIRR within just a few blocks of my office. Fast forward, and as if timed for our move, just a few months after my office moved away from the east side, lo and behold, the LIRR opened at Grand Central.
Every day is now a continuing adventure. Each train is packed with often lots of people standing. Did I mention that there are fewer cars on each train now too? Not to mention . . . the new schedule took away a number of my favorite trains and moved every single other.
Oh please, will this get better anytime soon?
