you're lucky that you have a train. i could take a local bus that goes down rte. 46, so out of the hassles of taking such a bus and my work hours (and sheer laziness ), i drive into midtown everyday. but not if the congestion tax goes through.
on a foodie note: have you been to the goffle road poultry farm?
Hey welcome... I used to work a few block from Penn Station myself... now relocated a bit to the SE near Jersey's other end. I miss NYC but not the Penn Station/Herald Square area (except the Korean BBQ). Welcome!
