Transportation and Transit

Subway and Bus Information:

  • The MTA - navigate from the MTA site or go to Subway and bus information, Long Island Rail Road and Metro North Schedules.
  • New Jersey Transit - Map and Schedules.
  • Mapquest maps will give you nearby subway stations now. Put in the address. When you get a map, page down and select "Auto/Transit" tab. Then check "Transit Stops" box and update the map. (You'll usually get closest stops on each line but not all stops nearby.)
  • Amtrak for information on trips in the northeast and more.

Automobile:

  • NYC Department of Transportation's Real Time Cameras. Click on Advanced Traveler Information System and then select the Manhattan page. Click on one of the little cameras for a real-time view of traffic conditions. Very cool, though not all cameras are working all the time.
  • Traffic information from MetroCommute.com. Somewhat odd design and you can't link to a specific spot. The cameras do not cover our neighborhood.
  • Heading north? This is Hudson Valley information, including the New York Thruway. Click on "Current Conditions" button.

  • Park and Burpee have mostly seeds and miscellaneous supplies
