Montauk Day Trip

Saturday, July 13, 2013

All 24 participants enjoyed the round-trip LIRR ride to Montauk. Although the weather brought some fog and a little rain, the spirits were high among those in attendance and they were treated to a tour of the lighthouse and a wonderful lunch at Gosman’s Dock.

Spend the day with the NYRRE riding the LIRR’s longest branch to its bumper post in Montauk and back. We will visit the Montauk Point Lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse in New York State, and have lunch at Gosman’s Dock Restaurant, Montauk’s favorite seafood restaurant.


We will leave from Penn Station at 7:45 AM and transfer at Jamaica for the 10:46 am Montauk train (board the third car from the rear). We will arrive in Montauk three hours later. A chartered school bus will take us to the lighthouse seven miles away in neighboring Montauk Point. You should be in good health if you plan to climb the 86 spiral steps to the top. We will arrive at the lighthouse around 11:15 AM, spend an hour and a half exploring and taking pictures, then return to Montauk at 1:30 PM for lunch at Gosman’s Dock Restaurant. We will take the 3:30 PM home, arriving at Penn Station in time for dinner and an evening on the town at your expense.
