Train ride with mommy

I loved the train ride to Madison in February, today we did it again! This time we made a longer trip to Summit.

Did you know that railroad first came over the "The Summit" hill in 1837? Since then the community began to change from a rural farming and milling to quasi-commercial. After the Civil War, Summit became a summer resort area because of its crisp, clean mountain air and convenient proximity to New York City. Summit attracted extremely wealthy people who built extensive summer estates.

Rail and bus links to Newark and Manhattan. The Summit Train Station has the Mid-Town Direct train - a less than 30 minute ride - from Summit to Penn Station. Daddy would probably be very happy if we lived here, it would save him an hour commute every day and use that time to play with me :-)
