Hampton Jitney

May 15, 2015 By Christian Murray

The Hampton Jitney, a bus service that goes between New York City and the east end of Long Island, is expected to introduce a stop in Long Island City.

The location of the stop is expected to be at 1 Court Plaza, according to the chairwoman of the transportation committee on Community Board 2. The service is likely to begin in July.

The Hampton Jitney, a for-profit company, typically carries about 300,000 riders from New York to the Hamptons from April to October each year. The company also offers comfortable coaches as opposed to the standard bus.

Rents getting higher is not the answer David! They’ve already increased at record high levels!?


Dramatic pearl clutching above aside, the ability to get to the beach easily for those of us without cars is nice.


But what if people from them Hamptons come to LIC? Even one of those undesirables would be a disaster. This is a risk LIC cannot afford to take.


It’s not about the people it’s about the money. Rents will keep rising and more developers will keep building until we are the Hamptons.


Cool I live in Woodside, it’ll be like being Hamptons adjacent. I can see it now yacht after yacht lined up from the old Greenpoint Navy Yard to the Hell Gate Bridge. Just think of the regattas on the Newtown Creek.


Maybe they’ll add a stop in front of the Planned Parenthood. What will that do to your rents?
