State Assemblyman Brian Curran addressed local concerns about the Long Island Rail Road with MTA official Robert Brennan, left, during an open forum at the Rockville Centre Library on Jan. 30.
Meda Meraday, a member of the Baldwin Oaks Community Association, also said that the Baldwin train station is not safe due to its lack of lighting — specifically under the station and in the parking lots on Sunrise Highway — the absence of police in its vicinity and a defunct escalator that reduces the safety of elderly and disabled riders.

Brennan said that the municipal parking lots around the Baldwin station are under the jurisdiction of the Town of Hempstead — 95 percent of the spots at railroad stations are usually under the local municipality, he added — and that he would report these complaints about parking to town officials.
