Located 60 miles east of New York City, Stony Brook is an hour and a half train ride away from Manhattan and the city’s surrounding boroughs. Campus residents searching for some weekend adventure need not look any further than their own backyard for transport. The Stony Brook Long Island Railroad (LIRR) Station, right behind the athletic fields can provide convenient transportation to the heart of all the action the city has to offer. Although every weekend the westbound platform of the Stony Brook LIRR Station is filled with Stony Brook students, many students are unaware of the various happenings around New York City that fit a college student’s budget.
As someone who commutes daily from the city to campus I am surrounded by an abundance of opportunities for things to do and I’ll be posting some of my findings in my entries.
Everyone needs a break from studying, what better way to unwind then to take a daycation to the city?
