          • Wow that's devastating. I'm a Met fan, but how many times I sat in those box seats watching Guidry, Munson, Jackson etc.

              :dismay:

              At least some of the eagles survived.
              Having commuted through both Grand Central and Penn Station for a couple of years each, it really never made a difference to me. In the morning I wanted to get to work in the evening I wanted to get home. Never bothered to stop and look at the surroundings

                  Thats what I was thinking. Now the thing that gets confusing is the B & D operate at different times, so will I be good to go straight up or will I have to transfer, depending whether its rush hour or not (If my memory serves me right, I had to transfer somewhere in between Herald Sq. and the Stadium)

                    Take the D train from 34th Street... If it's rush hour, sometimes the D will be going express from 145th to Tremont so you have to get off at 145th and take the B local for the last 2 stops... However I have noticed on game days the D usually stops at 161st St. even if it's express, so just make sure you listen for the announcement when the train gets to 145th St.

                        Yeah because if you take the B all the way from 34th, you will be wasting your time with a lot of local stops the whole way up to 161st.

                        • For the record, I already had my "emotional moment" saying farewell to YS, that was actually back in 2007 when I was at a game that I thought could possibly have been my last game there and I choked up and actually shed some tears as I was leaving. Turned out it was not my last game there, and I have not, and will not, ever get that upset about it again.

                            Alright, so Penn...walk over to Herald Square...take the D up...listen for announcements around 145th St. possibly get off and take the B local for 2 stops OR keep on the D to the Stadium. I think I got it. Maybe I can co author NYC Subway System for Dummies! Thanks again.

                              It would have been funny if you cried again. "Hey, daddy, there's that man that was crying last year too."

                                The big passenger train lines got put out of business by the airlines. When it had money to burn, the PennRR could afford to maintain/heat a huge, beautiful destination palace. When the overwhelming majority of the traffic became Joe Commuter from the burbs, maintaining a magnificent show place didn't make a lot of sense. Not saying it was the right call, just my take on their thinking.
