While parking around Long Island Rail Road train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town.
“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”

Hundreds of civic, business, community and elected officials gathered in Baldwin at the Coral House to support the annual kick-off of the Long Island Toys for Tots Drive on Monday, Oct. 27. The toy drive is the nation’s largest gift program for children during the holidays. Marine Corps Major Chuck Kilbride gave special recognition to the many people who make Toys For Tots possible locally, including U.S. Postal Service workers, marines, legislators, and the police and fire departments, who work tirelessly to collect toys each year.
The hundreds of guests were treated to special performances by the F.R.E.E. Players Jazz Ensemble and the American Bombshells trio.
