Is this particular line scenic? in other words from a tourist's perspective. - the route map seems to be close to the Great South Bay coastline and I was wondering if there are coastal views along the way. (Starting from Penn station)
Not necessarily all the way to Montauk but even roughly halfway - is there a stop that would be worth considering for a quick walk around and then returning back to NYC.
Why? - I find trains a relaxing way to see a bit of the surrounding environs and would make a contrast to walking around the city for my whole visit.
If this is not the best forum which would you recommend?
