Who’s the ‘mayor’ of your LIRR station?


Newsday's "Who’s the ‘mayor’ of your LIRR station?" map pulls in data from Foursquare, a location-based social network, that tells users how many people have checked-in to a station, who the foursquare 'mayor' of the station is as well as the most recent piece of advice left by LIRR riders.

“Kenneth B.” says ticket machines at the Oyster Bay Long Island Rail Road station don’t work as well in the rain. “Sam” suggests it’s best to board cars at the third and fourth "Watch the Gap" sign on the westbound side of the Great Neck station.

You can find these tips and more on our new LIRR "Mayor" Map, generated using data from Foursquare. The map features the “mayors” of every LIRR station on Foursquare, a social-networking site that lets users share their locations with friends. Our map includes tips from other users and shows the number of times someone has checked in at a site.

The most checked-in place on Long Island? Hicksville, with 6,125.
