As a busy, thriving metropolis, one of the most important aspects of New York City and its surrounding areas is the local metro systems. Taxis, buses, subways, and trains - NYC has them all. Our real estate agents recommend that anyone living in or interested in moving to the Long Island area be well-acquainted with the various metro services NYC has to offer. These services include the main intercity railroad station in NYC, Penn Station.
For residents and potential future residents of Long Island, Pennsylvania Station - or Penn Station, as most know it - stands as one of the critical transportation locations with which to become familiar. Penn Station represents the busiest transportation hub in the entirety of the Western Hemisphere.
With 21 railway tracks fed by seven tunnels and three concourses for travel, Penn Station is one of the go-to options for both intercity and interstate travel. There are individual concourses for Amtrak, Long Island Rail Road (often abbreviated to LIRR), and New Jersey Transit services. Penn Station also connects New York to Washington, D.C., Boston, Philadelphia, and several intermediate points.
In 2017, Penn Station opened its West End Concourse as well, allowing passengers to enter the station and board their trains using the historic James A. Farley Post Office on 8th Avenue. This is part of a larger plan, overseen by New York Governor Cuomo, to modernize and renovate Penn Station - a change that would be greatly appreciated by modern commuters.
With more than 650,000 daily commuters flowing in and out of Penn Station, it's important to know a few things about the station. For one, the station is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The general consensus on the best way to reach the station is to take the closest subway or bus - avoid driving or taking a cab (but then, most NYC natives do that already!).
If you need to grab a bite to eat while you're at the station, top recommendations seem to be that the Shake Shack is the best place to grab some grub inside Penn Station. There's also The Pennsy, a thriving food hall on the corner outside the station, as well as Rose's Pizza at Penn Plaza.
Our best tip is to take the time to stop by Penn Station as soon as possible. Familiarizing yourself with the rails, you might be using may save you some time (and confusion) on down the line! Of course, Penn Station offers maps throughout its three concourses and plenty of signage to point the way. Aside from rubbing shoulders with the other commuters, you shouldn't have too many problems figuring out where you need to go when the time comes.
New York City stands as one of the largest, thriving metropolitan areas in the world - a crossroads for people from all walks of life, and the cultural, financial, and media capital of the world. For those of us drawn to the hustle and bustle of urban life, NYC stands as the best representative of city life.

There's nothing like New York City excitement. NYC has 24/7 art, culture, and entertainment, but sometimes you just need a moment of peace. Our real estate agents recommend Gantry Plaza State Park. It's a city oasis in Long Island City that's close enough for you to enjoy a moment of peace and get right back to the action.
Gantry Plaza State Park is a peaceful green space that's perfect for a mid-city escape. The 12-acre park curves along the banks of the East River in Long Island City, Queens. Since its opening in 1998, the developers have transformed the park in stages to include activities and facilities for everyone.
Gantry Park offers traditional park amenities in a city setting. You'll find spaces for picnicking, organized sports, evening concerts and more. You can follow the curved steps down to the waterfront plaza. There you can sit quietly and look out over the river to a panoramic New York City skyline view. If you bring your fishing gear, you can claim a spot along one of four piers and cast your line into the river.
The park's location was once an abandoned dockyard and industrial site. Instead of tossing aside its past, Gantry Plaza State Park honors its once-thriving industrial roots. Two refurbished gantries give the park its name and a historical focal point. The structures were built in 1925 to help dock workers unload goods from railway cars and load them onto New Jersey-bound barges.
The bright red, four-story Pepsi-Cola neon sign is a national landmark and an essential element of Gantry Park's personality. The original sign was placed on top of the company's bottling plant in 1940. After decades of transitions and deterioration, Pepsi reproduced the sign in 1993. Despite the reproduction sign's young age, the Landmarks Preservation Commission gave it landmark status.
The Pepsi-Cola sign and the gantries are unmistakable waterfront landmarks. Together, they make Gantry Park stand out when viewed from either side of the river.
Gantry Park is a great location for families that want a park with more than a fabulous view. There's pier fishing, Adirondack chairs for lounging, and picnic tables for casual outdoor dining. The playgrounds provide child-friendly fun, and the park's playing fields are available for organized sports.
Gantry Plaza State Park hosts a schedule of events and concerts. Visit the New York Parks website for information on Fishing Fridays, Live at Gantries, and other upcoming events.
As with most New York State Parks, Gantry Plaza State Park visitors must pay a vehicle access fee. If you have an Empire Pass card, you qualify for entrance to Gantry Park, other New York State Parks, and State Department of Environmental Conservation venues.
When you schedule a group picnic, you must pay a fee based on the number in the group. You must apply for a permit to conduct a wedding photo shoot or other photo or video production. Teams must apply for a permit to use park playfields.
New York living can be exciting as long as you know the best places to go when you need to slow down. Our real estate professionals can help. Contact Coach REALTORS® when you're buying or selling a home in Long Island City or if you want to know more about the communities we serve.
Living on Long Island certainly has its share of perks. Aside from its array of stylish and beautiful homes, Long Island offers a variety of activities for your entire family to enjoy. While finding the perfect Long Island home for you is our priority at Coach REALTORS®, we also want you to discover all that the area has to offer. For a fun-filled day, our REALTORS® leave your cares behind and head out to Coney Island and Luna Park where adventure awaits in this iconic amusement venue which was inspired by the original 1903 park.
Coney Island is legendary, in part because of its history as the place to go for a day of fun, food, and thrills. With the original Luna Park being one of three amusement parks established in the early twentieth century on Coney Island, its newer namesake embodies all the excitement of years gone by with modern touches and attractions. Although the original park was devastated by fire in 1944, visitors will find that today's Luna Park and Coney Island are reminiscent of its glorious past. The Parachute Jump ride--once nearly everyone's favorite--is no longer in service, but the attraction still stands, now covered in thousands of LED lights. The new Thunderbolt coaster pays homage to the classic wooden coaster that served up thrills to park guests for decades, and visitors of all ages will delight in riding the beautifully restored B & B Carousell.
For guests who are looking for over-the-top thrills, Luna Park makes the grade with rides like the Coney Island Cyclone, Zenobio, and the Sling Shot. Feel the wind in your face as you take a ride on the Steeplechase, another of the park's classic thrill rides with ties to its past, and get your adrenaline pumping as you climb aboard the Coney Clipper. If less intense attractions are more your taste, rides like the Circus Coaster and Lynn's Trapeze are sure to please. Younger riders will love the Mermaid Parade and Speed Boat rides. At Luna Park, you'll also find plenty of midway type games that bring back the nostalgia of a summer carnival. Try your luck at one or all, and bring back a fun prize as a souvenir.
All the excitement you'll find at Coney Island's Luna Park might cause you to work up an appetite. You'll find plenty of mouthwatering treats throughout the park from savory and satisfying to refreshingly sweet. Enjoy delicious seafood offerings at Place to Beach, and don't miss the original Feltman's of Coney Island for the ultimate hot dog experience. Cool down with a creamy scoop from Coney's Cones or indulge with a treat from Fried Delights. You'll make so many great memories when you spend the day at Luna Park, and Thunderbolt Retail captures them in photos that you can take with you. Purchase souvenirs and trinkets at the Cyclone Shop and Last Stop Coney Island to remember your day.
Treat yourself and your family to a day of fun that you'll long remember. Coney Island and Luna Park are sure to become a favorite destination on Long Island.

Some people move to Oyster Bay for the quiet. Some move here to be near the seashore. And others for the history. In fact, historic homes for sale in Oyster Bay are popular. And often disappear from the local housing market as quickly as they enter. However, one historic home sure to remain an icon in the Oyster Bay community is Sagamore Hill, the former home of Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States.
Sagamore Hill is a national treasure waiting to be explored and enjoyed. Congress established it as the Sagamore National Historic Site to preserve the house as a part of the National Park Service. It was soon after listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The house is a must-see for Nassau County residents and visitors and is a source of pride for the community.
Our REALTORS® are excited to tell you about the history of Sagamore Hill and Oyster Bay and can't wait to show you homes for sale in Long Island.
History Unfolds at Sagamore Hill
When you step onto the grounds of Sagamore Hill, it's easy to leave your everyday life behind as history begins to unfold around you. The home itself is the centerpiece of the estate, having been the residence of Theodore Roosevelt from 1885 until the former President's death in 1919. While he was in office, Roosevelt's "Summer White House" was the site of several peace talks and visits from foreign dignitaries.
An Inside Look at Roosevelt's Legacy
Touring Sagamore Hill gives you a glimpse into the life of Theodore Roosevelt, the acclaimed political figure and the charismatic man. One of the highlights of the tour, the North Room showcases many of Roosevelt's prized trophy heads, animal skin rugs and gifts presented to him by various heads of state. You'll also find a collection of thousands of books and a diverse assortment of art acquired by Roosevelt throughout the home. The Queen Anne style home still has original furnishings and decor in its 23 rooms and underwent a meticulous renovation a few short years ago. Guided tours of Sagamore Hill are available for a small admission fee; you'll want to stop by the visitor center and bookstore during your visit.
Explore the Grounds
Sagamore Hill Historic Site includes not only the home but 83 acres of countryside once enjoyed by the Roosevelt family. Take advantage of the property's trails and picnic areas to relax and explore the salt marsh, beach, forest and meadows with your family. Part of the National Park Service, Sagamore Hill provides a tranquil setting for the outdoor enthusiast combined with the rich history of one of our country's most celebrated leaders. You can visit the park year round from sunrise to sunset.
The Oyster Bay area of Long Island is both charming and steeped in history, and Sagamore Hill is a shining example of both. You can visit President Roosevelt's Sagamore Hills home at 12 Sagamore Hill Road in Oyster Bay, New York.
