Additional Information

What's the Story Chartered on April 24, 1834 to provide a route between New York City and Boston, the Long Island Rail Road ran from the Brooklyn waterfront through the center of Long Island to Greenport. The railroad served the agricultural market on Long Island until branches and competing lines eventually developed on the north and south shores of the island and several hundred passenger stations were built. After Penn Station was opened in 1910, the number of passengers commuting between Manhattan and Long Island began to multiply. Today it is the nation’s largest commuter railroad, transporting over two hundred fifty thousand commuters daily and serving 124 stations.
