Kudos to Acela!
Foggy in NYC today, airports up & down. Fortunately I made the Boston-NYC-Boston round trip by Acela. I love trains. (Generational?) And with airports so difficult, Acela is my BOWASH choice. I don't mind the time ... there's no better place to do a quiet 3 or so hours of work.
Penn Station tip: Even if you have virtually no luggage, find a Redcap and offer a $20 tip to take you down to the train a couple of minutes early—I almost always get my preferred seat, a solo with a table in 1st class. (There's only one.) Hey, Steve Yastrow, I tend to find Acela staff quite friendly.
