The train ride from Newark Airport to Penn station was terrible. People hogging seats, I guess it's a rule not to sit down in an empty seat. I saw seat available, but no one sit in them. Old people was standing, you would think these...More

I've traveled through Penn Station quite a few times over the years. The good thing is that they are making improvements and have a grand scheme to smooth things out. I think it can be confusing because even though the tracks for Amtrak, NJ Transit,...More

So it's not like a train station in Europe. The food options aren't as nice and not as many. Having said that you can get a good sandwich and there is a good bakery. Wish there was a soup place.

I've commuted from New Jersey into Manhattan for 22 years. I've taken the bus (no picnic) and drove to the ferry (great as long as you don't have traffic on the road and there's no ice on the water). Then, there's Penn Station. I don't...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
