When I lived in Great Neck, I could hop onto the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) and be to Shea/Citi-field in eight stops, about 15 minutes. Now that I'm further out on the island, driving is easier but yeah I hate having to deal with the rush out of the ball park. If I have a choice, I'll take mass transit.
At first I thought there's no way Great Neck is that close to Queens, but then I realized, my folks lived in Great Neck right after they got married. Ain't that far from the tunnel on the 495.
I'm moving to Poughkeepsie tomorrow. Do-able to the Mets, Yanks, or the Dreadowlands, but a loooooong trip. Still beats driving. Honestly it would probably take me just as long just to drive to Gillette to see the Pats, though watching them beat the Jets at home would be great payback for that godawful playoff game I dropped $350 to see a couple years ago. If a flaming meteorite hit MetLife during the Jets-Giants preseason game, I could live with that.
