DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. -- Want to express your frustration about a train station you hate? Now you have the chance to cast your vote for the worst train station in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. A Mount Pleasant, N.Y., website is asking people to submit their votes.
The website trainjotting.com is making "one final plea" for nominations for "Crappiest Train Station in the Tri-State Area," which can include Metro-North stations and others.
The website poses this question: "Who's got the most soulless/charmless/depressing station in the (tri-state) region? And the site urges readers to "get those votes in, either in the comments section or via email at Trainjotting@gmail.com.
"OK, time to spice things up in these dog days with a new reader poll. Every year we do the 'Best Damn Commuter Town,' which has been won by Larchmont and Pleasantville in years past, as voted on by Trainjotting users," the website says. "These burgs (have been) saluted for their walkability, entertainment options, access to the city and aesthetics."
But, the website implores, "Let's take it in another direction: What's the worst train station in the region?
"This survey is looking specifically at the worst train station -- dirtiest surroundings, lamest post-work imbibing options, crime, flooding, inadequate signage, sour people, bad parking, dire need of renovations," the website says.
The winning (or losing?) station will be recognized. "The mayor or town exec in charge of (that) station will be notified of their (train station's) distinction by Trainjotting," the website states.
Nominations for the worst station can be included either in the comments section of the website or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
