I knew long island was Hell

One year of service, and still not a single retail establishment has expressed any interest in opening.

Correct. It’s desolate down there. No options to eat or drink. Nothing.

The asking rent must be too high, or something. You would think a Dunkin would be there.

A dining establishment in the LIRR concourse is possibly opening this summer.

MTA Chair Janno Lieber cited next-to-nil crime rates at the commuter hub on Tuesday as a reason for businesses to rent one of the 32 newly available retail spaces inside. Grand Central Madison, Lieber said, should not have the same problems facing Fulton Transit Center, where a retail giant is citing crime as a reason to break its lease with the agency.

“This facility has been virtually perfect from day one,” Lieber said during a panel inside the station. “I mean, the word is out that this is a really comfortable place to move through, and it’s got the best public bathrooms in New York, which says something about the level of safety.”
