RIDING ON THE E TRAIN – PART ONE

This is the train that next to the F train is the subway line that I take the most.

If you happen to be visiting New York City , chances are that you’ll be using this subway line a lot .

It’s the E train that starts at Jamaica Center in Queens and goes to its final stop in Lower Manhattan at the World Trade Center Station .

As I’m only going ftom Jamaica Center down to 34th Street and Penn Station , this post is going to be in two parts.

The E train is an express train, but unlike some of the other subway lines, it doesn’t go to Brooklyn or The Bronx.

It’s just from Queens and Manhattan .

One word of caution though.

On the weekends and late at night, the E train runs local, meaning it’s going to stop everywhere due to the infamous “track work” that happens on every subway line in the city.

You’d think that all this “track work” being done would make the service faster and the tracks nicer.

Nope, same old train tracks but that’s another story.

Now, let’s say you want to go to the city from JFK or JFK to the city.

This is the train that gets you there .

Just get off at Suthphin Boulevard – JFK stop, and believe ne, you’ll know when you get there.

Follow the other travellers with their luggage.

If you want to go to the other airport, LaGuardia, take the E to the Roosevelt Avenue station, walk upstairs and take the bus out there .

Remrmber to use your Metro Card that you brought for the subway.

You can use it on the bus as well .

You say that you’re taking the bus or an Amtrak train and not a plane?

The E train can get you to Port Authority and one of the largest train terminals in the United States , Pennsylvania Station or Penn Station for short.

Get off the train at 42nd St for Port Authority and 34th Street for Penn Station .

Now since this is a 30 Plus Teams Tour , of course you’re going to go to either a New York Knicks basketball game or a New York Rangers hockey game at Madison Square Garden .

The E train will take you right there.

Get off at Penn Station , you’ll see the signs for the place that calls itself, “the world’s most famous arena.”

Simple right?

Many of you will want to pay your respects at the 9-11 Memorial site.

The E train will get you there also.

It’s the last stop on the E train and the stop still reads World Trade Center .

It didn’t change after 9-11 .

    What is on the ceiling? Is it a map of the route or safety procedures? I like that they put it there, it at least gives you something to look at while riding the train.
