There are areas near the doors of the Long Island Rail Road trains where you can store luggage. There are no luggage storage/redcap services on LIRR.

As such, try not to travel during peak hour (4.30pm-6.30pm) in that direction, as your luggage will be in the way of the commuters and doors.

Is it Long island or Long Island City? Either way the answer is yes, but for LI you're using the LIRR that kateoz mentions. For LIC you're using the subway.

Whether it is Long Island (via the LIRR) or Long Island City (via the subway) you can take your baggage and it all may stay with you.
