Default New York Downstate Transportation.

So I was wondering if anyone knew how to get to Downstate by train. I normally drive there but being that the weather is kind of crazy and it's suppose to stay like this until tomorrow (saturday). I am coming from Westchester so I know I'd have to get on in Tarrytown take it to Croton and then from there I am not sure. I didn't see a Fishkill stop I only saw Beacon. I did a map quest from the beacon train station to the facility and it said it was 8 minz away from the train station. So Im not sure it seems pretty close so I was wondering if anyone knew that if this was the stop?


thank you!

I heard its the beacon stop. You have to take a cab from there. I think its something like 5bucks. There will be a bunch of taxis there.

I'm trying to go visit tomorrow too. Let me know if you hear anything about the roads. I'm going near Albany so I'm hoping they clear up the roads by tomorrow morning. I saw on weather.com that the weather advisory will be done by 1am so hopefully everything will be clear, or at least driveable, by tomorrow morning.
