Jamaica is a major transit hub for the Long Island Rail Road. It connects almost all major LIRR Branches (except Port Washington) to the (E), (J), and (Z) NYC Subway lines and the Airtrain JFK people mover. It is my favorite station because of the architecture of the entire thing. The lobby is spacious and nice, the view of the trains are amazing, the switches and junctions and all that stuff on the LIRR side is mesmerizing and interesting, and the other services, like the NYC Subway and AirTrain JFK add an extra coolness factor to the station. The only con I don't like is the $7.75 (subject to change) fare on AirTrain JFK. That is bullshit. $5 was fine enough.
