Grand central terminal to penn station,41 random facts about new york city,new york subway r line - Test Out

The escalators that will one day reach the East Side Acess Project terminal beneath Grand Central will the MTA's longest.
Commuters might endure a short trudge up stairs, but few would have patience—or the stamina—for a heart-pounding slog to the surface that rivals a military workout. And the MTA is experimenting with a first-of-its kind contract that will partially privatize the escalators.
There will be a very, very long horizontal tunnel leading to the base of the elevator banks, which will rise up to the same place the escalators terminate at.
Unless a very large proportion of passengers choose to use the elevators, I expect this long, dead-end corridor to be filled with homeless people, and possibly with muggers trying to steal from the handicapped. When I lived in DC in 2005-2006 for a few months, Woodley Park was my nearest Metro station. When I moved down to Washington in 1979, I was shocked not as much by the limited redundancy in the escalators from the street to the fare control areas (three at DuPont Circle, where the Red Line terminated at the time), but by the fact that at the side platform stops, WMATA offered zero redundancy provisions for getting from the fare control level to the platform. So even if you got people down from the street with one escalator out of service possibly due to exposure to the weather, you still would create a major bottleneck if the one of the platform escalators had to be fixed, because in its design-over-function mindset, WMATA never bothered to put in stairs in the majority of it’s original stations. It’s an office building, not some monument to fighting terrorism, and its name is 1 World Trade Center. All they have to do is ask the Port Authority how they manage to do it at the World Trade Center stop.
The PATH hill escalators (at the WTC) do have their troubles every now and then, but they rehab them fairly regularly. And then there’s the nightmare issue of blackouts or other incidents that cut power to the escalator banks.
The depth is really inconvenient, and even if passengers flow smoothly in and out it’s a long PITA trip just to the surface through an already packed station. Well it’s sure a heck of lot more convenient than riding on the train into Penn Station and then making your way back to GCT by subway – even if you ultimately end up just a few feet below the street level! Pardon me if this is incorrect, but I believe that Grand Central made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the station with the most tracks and platforms in the world. I believe the main problem was that the grade would be too steep from the deep 63 St Tunnel to the shallow platforms at 42 St. I wonder if a connection could be built in Sunnyside allowing trains to be routed over the Hell Gate Bridge and then down Park Avenue. I believe that the main reason that Grand Central is far below capacity is that Amtrak no longer uses it. If nothing else, how the deep cavern East Side Access project works will be a bit of a window on how passenger access would have worked with the deep cavern ARC project, had it been completed (and that’s not just on whether or not there are enough working escalators, but how passengers react to the big gap and time lag between the train and the street after being use to the short distances between the two at Penn Station). Tunneling directly under existing tracks would have been incredibly complex with the large buildings above the tracks. The reason the trains don’t go directly into the Lower Level is that LIRR and Metro-North are incapable of cooperating.
But even THERE, the point was to allow transferring in any direction, between any of the lines. But at the new LIRR station at Grand Central, they could have instead planned out the eight tracks and the four island platforms on ONE level. One large horizontal level would have required much more engineering to support everything above it, including the existing tracks and the large buildings above them.
I believe this is true, except for the Kew Gardens – Union Turnpike station (and only because the station is bisected by a highway interchange).
According to wikipedia “The longest set of single-span uninterrupted escalators in the Western Hemisphere is at the Wheaton station of the Washington Metro system. The upper landings of the escalators and the new LIRR concourse are in the footprint of what was once MNR’s Madison Yard.
And yes, it will be somewhat of a hike back to the Lexington Avenue Subway, but the majority of ESA’s users will be ending their trip at GCT, exiting directly out of the concourse along Madison, Vanderbilt, and the side streets.
There are concepts to shorten the walk from the caverns to the Lexington Avenue mezzanine, but they are quite involved engineering wise, and I think it will wait for another generation.
General discussion about railroad operations, related facilities, maps, and other resources. I'm not sure how easy it would be to find one on the Web anymore, but I believe the book, Passenger Terminals and Trains (Droege, 1916), had a Penn Station schematic.
Another book I dimly recall is Penn Station, Its Tunnels and Side Rodders, published in the late '70s. I realize you want a modern schematic, but to the best of my knowledge (which will be promptly corrected if I'm wrong) there have been few changes to Penn's trackplan since it was built.
I've never noticed it while riding, but the connection purportedly resembles a tame roller coaster, lifting and turning above the tubes, dipping below the yard, then lifting again to join the West Side. JFB wrote:to the best of my knowledge (which will be promptly corrected if I'm wrong) there have been few changes to Penn's trackplan since it was built.
Several changes circa 1930-- compare those as-built diagrams with the current one at the west ends of the platforms between tracks 9-10, 11-12 and 13-14. Before West Side Yard, tracks 20-21 were able to reach the North River tunnels without a reverse move. Notice that there is provision at the East end of the Southernmost 5 tracks for access to another, not yet built, East River tube. But I also had wondered about the track chart, and had decided not to even search since I thought the info would have been 'classified' by now. That said, if any of the members have a geniune concern about the posting of this information - please address it off-forum to Col. I have been working on a personal project to make a to-scale map of the railroads of the tri-state area. Anyway, I have completed a map of GCT which has been verified as of 2006 (actually, I was in GCT earlier today verifying some portions of this map), and will do the same for NYP when I get to that portion of the project, but I'm still a bit hasty about posting it on this board until the entire project is completed, since I know that some readers (and possibly moderators) share a completely different view on this subject than I. In the meantime, this low-res preview should give the curious parties an idea of the layout of GCT, without giving anything specific away.
The two-hour special explored the life and legacy of the man who created one of the world's most beloved pop icons, Mickey Mouse, and the world-renowned Disney theme parks.
The documentary first aired in February of last year.A Though educational, the special glossed over what we found to be the most interesting bita€”Walt's original plans for Epcot in Disney World. After Disneyland was built in California, Walt had an idea for another Disney project in Florida; however, he passed away in December 1966 before he could see it come to fruition.
We found the nearly half hour video Disney produced forA Florida Legislators to get permission and rights for his project.
Rather, Disney's plan consisted of building his own perfect Utopian city: the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrowa€”Epcot. The video sounded like a scene straight out of Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" which envisioned a similar world back in 1932.
New York City (also referred to as "New York", "NYC", "The Big Apple", or just "The City" by locals), is the most populous city in the United States. New York City is a center for media, culture, food, fashion, art, research, finance, and trade. Manhattan (New York County)The famous island between the Hudson and East Rivers, with many diverse and unique neighborhoods.
Queens (Queens County)Located to the east of Manhattan, across the East River, and north, east, and south of Brooklyn. The Bronx (Bronx County)Located north of Manhattan Island, the Bronx is home to the Bronx Zoo, the New York Botanical Gardens, and the New York Yankees professional baseball team. Staten Island (Richmond County)A large island in New York Harbor, south of Manhattan and just across the narrow Kill Van Kull from New Jersey. New York City is one of the global hubs of international finance, politics, communications, film, music, fashion, and culture. Immigrants (and their descendants) from over 180 countries live here, making it one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. The World Trade Center attacks of 11 September 2001 were a shared ordeal for the city's inhabitants.
At the center and western edge of New York City is the borough of Manhattan, a long, narrow island nestled in a natural harbor. Although Manhattan runs northeast to southwest, it is referred to as if it ran north-south. The term “the city” may refer either to New York City as a whole, or to the borough of Manhattan alone, depending on the context.
New York City has a humid continental climate and experiences all four seasons, with hot and humid summers (Jun-Sep), cool and dry autumns (Sep-Dec), cold winters (Dec-Mar), and wet springs (Mar-Jun).
The diverse population runs the gamut from some of America's wealthiest celebrities and socialites to homeless people.
The city's ethnic heritage illuminates different neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs. IATA: NYC is the code for all New York City airports, and the city is extremely well connected by air with flights from almost every corner of the world. Teterboro Airport (IATA: TEB) is popular for general aviation and business jet travellers out of New York City. ETS Air Shuttle - runs very infrequent shared ride van service between LGA and EWR for $32. All County Express - runs very infrequent shared ride van service between all LGA and EWR for $32.
Helicopter Transfer - A common method of travel or business people to downtown as well as smaller private airports.
Aer Lingus, Hawaiian, JetBlue (arrivals from Bogota (via Orlando), Aruba, Bermuda, and the Bahamas arrive at Terminal 5.
Landing or taking off from JFK has been much improved in recent years by the addition of the multi-billion-dollar Bay Runway, but due to sheer volume it remains the worst airport in the country in terms of flight delays.


Left luggage services are available in the arrivals areas of Terminal 1 and Terminal 4 and cost $4-16 per bag per day, depending on size. Total time to Manhattan using the subway is 60min; using the Long Island Railroad is 45min.
Transfers from the B15 to the subway are in some of Brooklyn's roughest neighborhoods, so this route is not recommended at night or for people unfamiliar with the city. Taxi - The most flexible route into the city from JFK is a taxi, although the wait for one can be long when many flights arrive simultaneously.
IATA: EWR (+1 800 397 4636) located to the west of NYC in Newark and Elizabeth, New Jersey.
Other buses, such as the Go 28 Bus, the 37 Bus, the 40 Bus, and the #67 Bus stops in Newark Airport at Terminals A, B, and C.
Newark Airport Express Bus - ($16 one way, $28 round-trip) runs every 15min to 42nd street in Manhattan. Taxis - Travellers from EWR to New York City are charged a flat rate based on the destination (the dispatcher will note the fare and destination on the taxi form). Private Car Service - An alternative to taxis, car services are useful for getting to the airport from the outer boroughs where taxis are harder to find, or if you prefer to have transportation reserved in advance. Local Bus - costing $2.75, this is the cheapest method of transport, although the slowest to Manhattan. Flushing (30min): Long Island Railroad, as well as buses to Eastern Queens and northern Nassau County. A shuttle bus (10min, $5) operates between the ISP and the Ronkonkoma Long Island Railroad station. BoltBus bus shuttles to Manhattan from the Courtyard by Marriott hotel near the LIRR station. Hampton Jitney bus services from Ronkonkoma to Manhattan cost $25; the bus stop's a short cab ride away from ISP.
Near the town of White Plains, is served by American, Cape Air, Delta, JetBlue, United, & USAirways. Amtrak's ClubAcela, located near the big security desk in Penn Station, offers complimentary drinks, Wi-Fi, newspapers, magazines and clean bathrooms.
Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) operates between New York Penn Station and Long Island with New York City stops at Jamaica Station, Long Island City, and Hunters Point in Queens as well as Atlantic Terminal station in Brooklyn.
Metro-North Rail Road (Metro North) operates between Grand Central Terminal and points north and east of the city all the way to Connecticut. Those that exist in the subway system break down more often than we would prefer, and repairs take far longer to complete than initially expected. When the East Side Access terminal opens, 15 stories underneath Grand Central, the authority will be relying on 47 escalators traversing 180 feet into the depths.
In public remarks about the East Side Access project, MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota has invoked the notoriously steep, and sometimes stalled, escalators of the Metro in Washington, D.C.
The company that designed the escalators and 22 elevators for the station won’t just install them, but also operate and maintain them in years to come. Right now, commuters who know of the East Side Access plan have little sense of just how deep the terminal is, and the MTA will have no choice but to keep these escalators running.
I assume there will be quite a few elevators bringing passengers closer to GCT’s main hall? Oh the times I’ve climbed those stupid escalators at WMATA because no one put in stairs.
You had one up escalator, and one down one in most cases, and very rarely you’d find three escalators connecting the platform with fare control. That was despite the fact you were only looking at a 15-foot gap between fare control and the platform levels, not the 100-or-so feet at times between fare control and the street.
There’s enough capacity generally to get people to and from street level for the most part, even if they have to take one or two escalators out of service. A colleague of mine and I were having a conversation at the office and we both agree that ESA will very much discourage those who travel to lower Manhattan from going into Grand Central. In the old days, long before there was Amtrak, Grand Central was as much a gateway to this city as was Penn Station. I mean, why didn’t they plan the LIRR station to be just one level below the existing Lower Level?
The most notable being the LIRR West Side yards and the Empire Connection, both of which are more addendum than modification. It loops northward, running over the North River tubes and under the West Side yard leads, then joins the former NYC West Side Freight Line for the run up to Spuyten Duyvil (spelled just like that). Also a x-over or two has been removed-- the 33rd St tunnels can't reach quite as many platforms as they used to.
The project has two intentions - #1 as a learning experience for me, as I need to study the systems before I can draw them and #2 as a resource for fellow railfans.
Each of its five boroughs is the equivalent of a large city in its own right and may itself be divided into districts. It lies at the mouth of the Hudson River in the southernmost part of the state, which is part of the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S.
It has one of the largest and most famous skylines on earth, dominated by the iconic Empire State Building.
Manhattan is home to the Empire State Building in Midtown, Central Park, Times Square, Wall Street, Harlem, and the trendy neighborhoods of Greenwich Village and SoHo. Queens is the home of the city's two major airports, the New York Mets professional baseball team, the United States Open Tennis Center, and New York City's second-largest Chinatown (in Flushing). Alongside London it's one of only two universally acknowledged to be "World Cities" - the most important and influential cities on Earth. Despite those events, from 2003 to the present, New York City has rebounded and surpassed itself in growth. The other boroughs, which are Brooklyn, The Bronx, Staten Island, and Queens, are sometimes referred to as “the outer boroughs.” The term "upstate" generally refers to any part of the State of New York north of the city limits of the Bronx, but not neighboring New Jersey or Connecticut. Its 2009 gross metropolitan product of $1.265 trillion was the largest of any American city and represented approximately 9% of the American economy.
Kennedy International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport (the latter in New Jersey) are large international airports, while LaGuardia Airport is a busy domestic airport. The rides cost $10 between LGA and JFK, $32 between EWR and LGA and $29 between JFK and EWR. There are eight terminals that are not very close to each other (with two that are to be demolished and soon rebuilt), so it is important to note which terminal your flight leaves from. When returning to the airport on the "A" train, be sure to board a train to Far Rockaway or Rockaway Park, NOT to Lefferts Blvd. The buses depart from a new ramp near Terminal 5 (signs inside Terminal 5 will point the way).
While this option is cheaper than taking the AirTrain to Jamaica and connecting there to the LIRR, LIRR service from here is much less frequent than LIRR service from Jamaica. During rush hours, from this stop, you can take express buses X63, X64, X68, QM18, and QM21 to Manhattan.
Passengers who are stopped at the North Area of Newark Airport can be transferred by the Go 28 Bus.
Due to regulations, almost all direct flights from LGA are to destinations within 1,500 miles (2,419km).
The buses have little room for luggage (M60 SBS and Q70 routes have luggage racks on board).
An off-board fare payment system is in use on this route only, and a proof-of-payment ticket must be obtained before boarding the M60 SBS route by using a MetroCard, single ride ticket, or coins at the SBS fare machines located at the bus stop. You can save on tolls by asking the driver to use Queensboro Bridge for points midtown and on the Upper East Side, the Williamsburg Bridge for the Village and downtown, or Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges for points downtown. Passengers flying into Trenton can reach Manhattan by taking a taxi to the Trenton train station and then taking the Jersey Transit's Northeast Corridor Line or Amtrak to Penn Station. Popular trains leaving during rush hours can fill up quickly; it's a good idea to make reservations on-line or via phone and pick up your ticket using a credit card or your confirmation number at one of the electronic kiosks located throughout the station. Amtrak services are also available to points along the East Coast down to Florida, across the southeast to New Orleans, to points between New York and Chicago, including Pittsburgh and Cleveland, to New York state including Albany, Rochester, Buffalo and Niagara Falls, and to Toronto and Montreal in Canada.
Some of the problem is due to the 24-7 pounding these machines take, and part of the problem is due to just about anything you could imagine.
The Manufacture even said as much durring a board meeting, but those who made the decisions didn’t listen. Put at least one stairway in at each access point, or at least make the number of escalators as massively redundant as the bank that was in the original PATH station at the WTC. One of the nice things about the NYC subway is that it’s easily accessible and usable, simply a story or two below ground for most of the area built with cut and cover.
Yes, I realized that would hurt Metro North operations since they are operating at capacity, but they already had to get rid of the yard on the lower level, and I know a few of the tracks they use just to store boxcars and garbage cars.
I have used the station several times but had no idea of what the station as a whole was like. The project is starting with Metro-North, as that is the railroad I am most familiar with, and will eventually include the entire NJT and LIRR systems, as well as the Amtrak Shoreline and Springfield lines in Connecticut, and some of the freight lines in the area. These borough and district articles contain sightseeing, restaurant, nightlife and accommodation listings — consider printing them all.
Within each borough individual neighborhoods, some several square miles in size, and others only a few blocks in size, have personalities lauded in music and film.
With over 170 languages spoken, Queens is the most ethnically diverse region in the United States, and one of the most diverse in the world. English is the primary language spoken by most New Yorkers although in many communities it is common to hear other languages that are generally widely understood.
In the past 20 years, so many middle class people have moved into the city, whether from other parts of USA or the world it has changed the entire city's character.


Street numbers continue from Manhattan into the Bronx, and the street numbers rise as one moves farther north (however, in the Bronx, there is no simple numerical grid, so there may be 7 blocks between 167 St.
Traces of the Lower East Side's once-thriving Jewish community still exist amid the newly-gentrified neighborhood's trendy restaurants and bars, but there are Chassidic communities in Borough Park, Crown Heights and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The famous Wall Street is where the New York Stock Exchange (NYSC) is as well as the famous (or infamous) investment banks and financial investment firms. The Early Air Way, and Jetset Charter fly a variety of private charter aircraft and jets, from charter luxury Gulfstream's down to economical piston twins for small groups and individuals. A bus transfer is required to the Newark Airport Express Bus at the Port Authority Bus Terminal for Newark Airport to and from JFK and LaGuardia Airports. AirTrain connects the terminals - note that it is only free if you are traveling between terminals; to either terminus, the fare is $5.
Luggage trolleys are available either for a fee of $3 in Terminals 2, 3, 7, 8, 9 or free in Terminals 1 and 4. Look for this destination sign on the side of the train as many tourists often mistakenly take the Lefferts Blvd train when not paying attention.
Note that during rush hours, the "J" and "Z" operate a skip-stop service, bypassing alternate stations between Manhattan and Queens. If you take the "A" or "J" during overnight hours, be alert of your surroundings as the train passes through some rough neighborhoods. These buses have little room for luggage and go to non-touristy neighborhoods in Queens and Brooklyn. While these routes are slower and more expensive than taking the subway, they do offer a ride on cloth seats without the crowding.
Terminal 7 is usually the first stop, which takes about 45 minutes after departing, then Terminals 8, 1, 2, 4, and 5.
Taxis to points other than Manhattan and taxis to the airport from anywhere use the meter (see taxis in 'Getting around"). Most flights are domestic; however, there are international flights from LGA to Canada, Aruba, the Bahamas and Bermuda.
While the schedule on-line shows stops at Penn Station, the bus does not go there noon-6pm; however, SuperShuttle offers a free connecting service between Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal.
If going above 72nd St, it is better to pay the toll ($5.50) and take the RFK Bridge (formerly called the Triboro) into Manhattan.
On some of the non-business routes, for example New York to Montreal, Amtrak actually takes more time and costs more money than taking the bus or renting a car. The New Haven line serves cities along the coast with branch lines to Danbury and Waterbury.
Engineers have added extra capacity, so breakdowns won’t bring the station to a standstill. So as a result, they have escalators that have a high failure rate & once they do fail, getting replacement parts are next to impossible. Lower tracks are Port Authority, Trans Hudson, PATHSouthernmost tracks are of course NJ Transit, not PATH.
Although I have heard a number of moral objections to this project by other railfans that are worried that these maps could be used for sinister purposes, I can't imagine a possible way that anybody could use this information to damage or harm the trains or passengers, which they couldn't otherwise do on their own.
Where you live, work, and play in New York says something to New Yorkers about who you are. Brooklyn is also home to the Barclays Center, an arena that hosts the Brooklyn Nets professional basketball team. Areas that were decaying and dangerous in the 1970's and 1980's are now very expensive to live in. Harlem has been gentrifying and diversifying and remains a center of African-American culture in New York. There is Wi-Fi via Boingo, which is sometimes considered not reliable; however, Terminal 5 has free Wi-Fi.
The arrivals terminals are filled with drivers hawking illegal livery rides - if you want to take one of these, be sure to negotiate the fare in advance and make sure that it is cheaper than the taxi fare noted above. As a word of caution, note that this is not a well-publicized option; you may well find yourself to be the only tourist on the bus, so don't expect much help or companionship in finding your way. The Marine Air Terminal, currently used by Delta Airlines (LaGuardia is also Delta Airlines's Hub) for services to Washington D.C. Free transfers between bus and subway, subway and bus, and bus and bus are available only with a MetroCard; the single ride ticket does not allow free transfers and coins are needed to board the buses without a MetroCard.
The concourse was very shabby at first, as it had been for many years, but the major renovation was a good job and transformed it. The headquarters of the United Nations is in New York and most countries have a consulate here. Times Square with all its brightness and amusement park visuals today was avoided at all costs 30 years ago. New York can also be prone to snowstorms and nor'easters (large storms similar to a tropical storm), which can dump as much as 2 feet (60cm) of snow in 24-48 hours.
Note that free transfers between bus and subway are available only with a MetroCard; the single ride ticket does not allow free transfers. While the online schedule shows stops at Penn Station, the bus does not go there until 8pm; however, there is a free connecting service between Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal.
NJ Transit trains stop at both Penn Station in Newark and at Penn Station in New York, so if travelling to Manhattan, stay on till the second Penn Station, in New York. A $5 surcharge is added for trips to to New York, except Staten Island, during weekday rush hours or weekend afternoons.
There is a change machine in the airport terminal and MetroCards can be bought in the airport at Hudson News.
The East River Tunnels are on the right, four of them, and the Hudson River Tunnels are on the left, two of them. The point is, if somebody wanted to use the data on my map for sinister purposes, they could have found this information on their own, and I seriously doubt that not having such easy access to a track map of NYP or GCT would thwart an attack.
This city's influence on the globe, and all its inhabitants, is hard to overstate, as decisions made within its boundaries often have impacts and ramifications across the world.
There are also many neighborhoods throughout the city that have a high concentration of Chinese immigrants where Mandarin or Cantonese may be useful.
Although crime has dropped nationwide in the last 20 years, the differences in New York City are extreme. Little known to most tourists are the large Dominican neighborhoods of Hamilton Heights and Washington Heights in upper Manhattan.
Service generally runs every 10-15 minutes weekdays, 15-20 minutes Saturdays, and 20-30 minutes Sundays, with overnight service every 30 minutes.
In 2009, LGA ranked last among major US airports in both on-time arrivals and customer satisfaction.
At New Haven, passengers may transfer to Amtrak or to the Shore Line East providing local service between New Haven and New London, Connecticut. Moynihan station is a bad idea whose time would never come, if I had my way, although it probably will. Nobody needs to know that the engine yard in Grand Central is numbered tracks 90-94 and is located between the leads to tracks 34 and 33 in order to plant an attack there, nor would they even care.
In some of these neighborhoods, some locals may not speak very good English, but store owners and those who would deal frequently with tourists or visitors all will speak English. Crime is down to one third of the levels of 1989 and, considering how much the population has grown in the same years, New York City is now one of the safest large cities in America.
Queens streets are laid out in a perpendicular grid - street numbers rise as one moves toward the east, and avenues run east and west.
Brooklyn's Greenpoint is famous for its large and vibrant Polish community, and the Flatbush section - once home to the Brooklyn Dodgers - is today a huge and thriving Caribbean and West Indian section. Remember that most international United flights (except any flight that's done pre-clearance, for example in Dublin) always arrives at Terminal C while some may arrive at Terminal B due to space.
Metro North tickets can be purchased on-line or inside stations prior to boarding the train. They would just walk up one of the platforms or look out the window of a train and see what they need to see. Queens and Brooklyn are known for being home to many of New York's more recent immigrant groups, which since 1990 have included large numbers of Russians, Uzbeks, Nigerians, Chinese, Irish, Italian, French, Filipinos, Yugoslavians, Greeks, Indians, Sri Lankans, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Japanese, Koreans, Thais, Kenyans, Arabs (from throughout the Middle East and northern Africa), Mexicans, Dominicans, Ecuadorians, Brazilians, Colombians and Jamaicans.
International travellers are most strongly advised to avoid connecting in JFK to other international flights, as the security and immigration procedures for non-US citizens are monumentally time-consuming and tiresome.
If the newsstands are closed and you would like to spend 30 minutes to save $2.25, take the Airtrain to the Howard Beach Station where you can buy a multiple ride Metrocard from the vending machines without leaving the station (free). If this is not your final destination but a layover to your destination, re-check your bags, and go to Terminal C. In addition, all Jetblue International flights and some Aer Lingus flights (except any flights from both airlines that have done pre-clearance and Flights from Puerto Rico) are required to arrive at Terminal 4 not Terminal 5 since they don't have customs yet, although it'll be built by 2015.
Then take the Airtrain back one stop to the Lefferts Boulevard station, where you can cross the street for the Q10 and B15 buses. During the last 2 decades and especially since 2003, large numbers of young people, many of them recent college graduates and professionals from the rest of the USA have moved to New York City, mostly to Brooklyn, Manhattan, and the parts of Queens closest to Manhattan.
They have changed things considerably and continue to add to New York's vitality and artistic output. They have completely changed their neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Manhattan, such as Williamsburg, Brooklyn and Lower East side, Manhattan. One important thing to note about New York City, is its never-ending change, new stores, businesses, buildings and even skyscrapers replace the previous structures, there is always new construction.
