Howdy folks, its been a long time since I've posted.

I'm taking a trip from San Diego to NY next week to visit family. My first time back on Long Island in 9 years! I have a lot to do and see. I will have a van but not one I can drive. I plan on heading into the city and was wondering whether the LIRR, and Penn Station, are accessible. Last time I took the train from the island to the city was over 20 years ago and I had to be carried up the steps in Penn Station. Not fun.
