Pros
beautiful trip along the Hudson river. seats were very comfortable
Cons
We got off on the wrong exit. Apparently there are 2 Penn Stations. Other than trying to listen to the overhead speaker there isnt anything else that tells you what exit you are at, like the metro system in DC. Getting back on track was not a good experience in Newar...More
