Starting Friday afternoon, the Long Island Rail Road will be running its new express service to the east end of the island.
Trains will depart from Penn Station at 4:07 p.m. on Fridays and run nonstop to Westhampton. From there, the train will continue eastward, making stops at Southampton, Bridgehampton, East Hampton and Montauk.
A dangerous and historic discovery was made in Central Park on Friday afternoon. Parks workers came upon a live cannon ball, loaded in a cannon that is getting refurbished.
Workers were digging in the water and the cannonball, believed to be from the Civil War time period, was found in dirt that was scooped up by their backhoe, officials said.
