Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that smoking will no longer be allowed on MTA outdoor areas- including those on the Metro-North which many use to get from upstate New York (what ever your definition of upstate NY might be) to NYC.
Here's part of the statement released Aug. 15.
"...Cuomo signed a law to prohibit smoking on MTA operated outdoor train ticketing, boarding, or platform areas, including the Long Island Railroad and Metro-North. Smoking is already prohibited on outdoor NYC subway platforms."
On a side note: sorry for the delay...time flies when you go to weddings every weekend.
