Commuting to work via train is exasperating and expensive—add on the stress of parking and the threat of tickets, it becomes madness.
“There’s a lot of parking if you get here early enough,” commuter Michelle Vernant said. “If you think you’re getting a spot after 8:30 a.m., think again.”
At the New Hyde Park Train Station, there are 340 commuter parking spaces that line the train station from New Hyde Park Road to Covert Avenue.

Despite a disappointing playoff loss against the Wantagh Warriors, Sewanhaka Indians Head Coach George Kasimatis, is pleased with his football team’s season.
“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”
The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against.
Kasimatis will have a tall task next year replacing graduating seniors, which made up most of his starting lineup. Kasimatis said most of the offensive line, such as Danny Gianotti, Adrian Gonzalez and Louis Segarra III, and the defensive line, such as Justin Alexandre, Peter LaTorre and Peter Militano are seniors, many of which have started multiple years for him.
