Where is NJ?

A handy Penn Station hack that I learned today from a NJ Transit conductor. If you want to find the front of a NJ Transit train when you're boarding from the platform, turn to put your right shoulder closest to an even numbered track. You're then facing the front (for NJT - the LIRR, I believe, uses the other side as the "front"). This is super handy because I often run down a random staircase in Penn Station, end up disoriented, and take a moment to find a "New Jersey ^" sign to orient myself.
