NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Good news, beachgoers.
The Long Island Rail Road is announcing plans for the first non-stop express service direct from Penn Station to Westhampton Beach this summer. The ride will take 94 minutes.
The service will run Friday afternoons with return service Sunday evenings.
“No changing trains at Jamaica with luggage, no subway ride to Hunterspoint, just get on the Cannonball,” LIRR President Helena Williams told reporters at Penn Station, including WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell.
