My grandparents used to live in Far Rockaway until the late 1970's. What in God's name has happened to that place?

The story about Syosset (Robbins Lane) tragedy did not allow for posting.

If convicted felon Taubman would pay to put the road under the tracks at Robbins Lane, ie eliminate the "grade crossing", maybe we could let him build his mall.

Helena, are you reading this?

Fallen debris hitting a train...a gate not repaired properly and resulting in the death of a man in his delays on three different lines.

There was no rain. There was no snow. Temperatures were slightly above normal for this time of year and the winds were high.

A couple of months back, after a derailment, the repairmen felt hurt because their boss called them names. They didn't pick up the phones when called to work on a Sunday night.

LIRR employees can come up with all sorts of retorts in this forum to our complaints.

My favorite is how we are all jealous that we don't have their jobs.

Well, I don't know about anyone else, but I wouldn't be too proud to say I work for the LIRR right now. And you can believe me, I'm not jealous of a darn thing.

New York is the business seat of the United States. And unless we are given a proper railroad that gets us to work on time and at a reasonable price, it's the U.S. that will suffer in lost business and revenue.

You folks at the LIRR really do stink at your jobs.

You are theives. You are not concerned about your customers, your community nor your country.

You are the shame of New York.
