Your LIRR Commute After Sandy

With commuter anger boiling over repairs to East River Tunnels, we want to know how your commute has been going.

There have been many challenges in the area since Hurricane Sandy struck last month, but one of the biggest has been fixing the damaged rail system.

A major issue has been the repair of two East River tunnels owned by Amtrak which the Long Island Rail Road uses to get into Manhattan.

Rep. Steve Israel, D-Huntington, held a press conference in which he said he received assurances from Amtrak that the tunnels would be repaired by Christmas week.

Standing room only on every train I've taken home.

The 6:25 AM which starts in Hicksville hasnt been operating since Sandy. I have been standing to Penn everyday. Finally today it was running. The train was empty. Maybe nobody knew it was back ?
