A while ago I asked about NJ Transit from Whitehouse, NJ to NYC. I know Tina gave a lengthy post answer but, now I can't find it. Anyone have that link handy?

Did a search and found it for you:

Hi 4 Leaf - I grew up in NJ and, I can help you out. The
first thing you're going to want to do is bookmark this site:

http://www.njtransit.com

Now,
as far as coming in from Whitehouse - you'll be using the Raritan
Valley line. You simply go to the train station and get on the train.
I'm not sure if there is a vending machine at Whitehouse or not, if
there isn't, you pay for your ticket on the train. If there is a
vending machine or if the station is open for ticketing, make sure you
get your ticket before getting on the train or you'll be hit with a $5
surcharge.

Be advised that you'll have to switch trains in
Newark. Don't worry. It's easy. You don't have to change platforms.
Simply wait for the train into New York which is usually no more than a
10 minute wait. There are video monitors all over the station so you'll
know exactly when your connecting train is due. If I'm remembering
correctly, you'll connect with Shore Line train but, double check,
since it's been a LONG time since I've used the Raritan Valley Line. (I
use Midtown Direct which is the Morristown/Dover line). If you'd rather
use the Midtown Direct Line, you'll have to go to Peapack, Far Hills,
etc and you switch trains in Summit - don't know if you'd find that
easier or not).

Luggage - I'm back and forth between the city
VERY frequently and, I always have luggage in tow (including my cat on
occassion - he's strange he travels well for a cat). My recommendation
is to head to Manhattan during off peak hours (after 10 am and before
4pm). The trains are rarely crowded during these times but, if it does
happen to be crowded, there are overhead racks for luggage storage and
also, if your bags are small enough, you can slide them under the seats.

Now,
once you're on a New York train, you'll be taken to Penn Station. Upon
arrival at Penn, you'll head up stairs or an escalator to street level.
Once you get upstairs from the trains, look for the 34th and 7th Avenue
exit, take the escaltor up and if you look to your left once you're
outside, you'll see a taxi stand. Note: even if the line seems
impossibly long, it moves pretty fast! I also don't recommend
attempting to take a subway with luggage in tow.

I hope I covered everything you've requested! If not, let me know and I'll try to give you more details!
