    Yes, he did. You're right. It is New York.

    How many hundreds of times did I take the train to/from NY's Penn Station and my home town of Huntington, and the conductor would intone, as he punched my ticket, "Change at Jamaica."

    When we (track team members from Great Neck South) would go from Great Neck to MSG for the Millrose Games (1969-71), we would catch the bus to Jamaica and then catch the subway.

    Wouldn't it have been easier to take the Long Island RR from Great Neck to Penn Station?

    Probably less expensive to take the bus and then the subway. The subway would also leave you off at 50th Street and 8th. Take the LIRR to Penn Station and you still had to either walk from 34th to 50th or take the subway.

    You had mentioned the Millrose Games of 1969-71. Those meets were held at the "new" Madison Square Garden, which opened in 1968 and which in essentially in the same building as Penn Station.

    LIRR left from downtown, but we caught the bus from Northern Blvd. We were a bunch of high schoolers who didn't know much, but loved the excitement of the bus and subway. But the best part was being at MSG watching the Games!

    My oops for not checking first to see when the Garden moved from 50th to 34th.
