Port Inconvenienced Less Than Most During Strike
Susan Shattuck smiled, looking rather calm and serene, as she exited the 4:03 p.m. train on Wednesday, Dec. 21, even though it was 10 minutes late arriving at Port Washington and many riders couldn't sit. The biggest problem is probably that the trains are leaving a little later. The 9:11 going into Penn Station on Wednesday morning left at 9:30 a.m. She thought the delay was possibly caused by the extra stops. Two extra stops inbound included Shea Stadium where Queens residents entered, Shea being a parking area for commuters who want to take the LIRR. Susan's friends in Brooklyn told her about their arduous walk into Manhattan to go to work. She said she felt "more fortunate" to be able to use the LIRR.
