New York — It wasn’t easy getting on the train.
It was even harder getting off.
After a flight from Boston and a day working at JFK airport, I got on the Airtrain around 7 p.m. Sunday only to find the tracks were iced over and it couldn’t move.
Taxis weren’t an option either, and car services laughed at people who called to request pickups.
So after a long wait, hundreds of stranded travelers shoved their way through the snow with their luggage onto packed airport shuttle buses – which got stuck again and again, finally letting passengers out to trudge the last stretch of road to the Howard Beach A train station.
