Yeah, I've used the station since it's been renovated.... Obvious improvement, but I still don't care for the fact that there's no TVM on the New York av. side....

Is it still first 4 cars only?

I don't care cause I use Barclays to get to the (2)(3) train for Lower Manhattan to catch the Hempstead Branch.

I rather take the M15 up from Lower Manhattan to 59th Street because it's faster. 

Deucey removed some stuff unrelated to the topic that could’ve derailed the thread. Forgive the pun.

Hell, 6 cars on every train is likely all we're going to see in service, whenever they start shuttling Brooklyn service to/from Jamaica.... They're just about done with that new platform at Jamaica....

And with no infill stations or reduced fares, to boot.

It really makes this renovation questionable...

At Nostrand av? No - The renovation is done already (hence the point of the thread)....

Good to know that the Hempstead branch serves Lower Manhattan.

I've always said that a Utica av station would be more patronized than Nostrand av.... LIRR Nostrand av. always felt out of place to me for some reason.... For Queens patrons, hell, at least 1 station between ENY & Jamaica would also be in order....

Anyway, when I used to take the LIRR to work (during the midst of the renovation), the first thing that came to mind, was that this is all being done as part of the gentrification process....

I want to see how they're going to try to beautify the dungeon/bathroom/outdoor living arrangement that is LIRR ENY....

Dungeon/bathroom/ is a great description. I also think Utica and Woodhaven makes more sense.
