Pros: The commute was as I expected it-- good seat, on time. The attitude and service was better than expected. - warm and friendly. Cons: Although I think I understand the reasons, it would be good to have at least one person on duty at the Yonkers station as well as somewhere to sit in the station. It gets cold up on the platform in the wind. Only other negative (minor) was that the exterior windows on train were too dirty to take pictures of the wonderful views of the Hudson River. Maybe next time...
