Good news for Long Island Railroad customers at Penn Station. You can now get wireless access to the internet while you wait.A LIRR spokesman said the waiting area went Wi-Fi Wednesday morning just before rush hour.

Helena Williams, LIRR President said they decided to go Wi-Fi after noticing many customers using their laptops while they waited for trains, so this was just the next step.

Gerard Bringmann, who chairs the Long Island Rail Road commuter's council called having Wi-Fi to the LIRR waiting room a nice little "extra" for riders.
