    Currently I am sitting on the Yeoman A-school list, and knowing that, I would imagine that there is a very good chance that I will wind up at a sector for my first unit, or at the very least a SPO. My question is, has anyone worked at Sector Long Island Sound or at Sector New York? I've never lived in a 'city' in my life and I've never been to a Sector either. What's it like?
    Is it like its own small city? How many people usually work at them? If you need to use the toll bridges (at Sector NY its an inevitability) is there a military discount or can you claim it on your taxes? Any input is welcome, good or bad.
    Thank you

    PS:
    I also read that military housing is mandatory at Sector NY. Is this true for everyone or only single people?

    It isn't currently mandatory due to a current sprinkler move for accompanied housing. Don't be afraid to pick up the phone and call a unit and ask questions. There are no toll discounts, most people take the bus if they live in BK, and there is a reimbursement for public transportation. I have lived here for 2 yrs, if you are from a small town such as I this place is tough. It has been my least favorite location since I've been in the Coast Guard, work wise it's been amazing though.

    I am currently stationed at Sector New York working at the VTS. First thing you need to know is that the Sector is in Staten Island located on an old Army base called Fort Wadsworth (you can Google it and get an idea of the location from Google maps). Half of the first floor is Admin, thought I would throw that in there since you are going to become a YN. As stated above housing is not mandatory, but be aware that apartments are expensive. There are a lot of members that live in New jersey and Brooklyn. As for Tolls...There are three bridges that come into Staten Island, the Goethals, Outer bridge, and the Verrazano Bridge. Since you are going to be a YN that means you will be coming in Monday through Friday and that qualifies you for the Staten Island Commuter plan, with this your bridge tolls go from $10 a crossing to $4.50 a crossing.

    I would be more than happy to answer any questions you have on Sector New York, just shoot me a PM here and I will give you my e-mail address if you are interested.

    Wonderful! Thank you two for all the info.
    But what do you mean by reimbursement for public transportation? We get money back for tolls or do we claim them on our taxes? And is The Staten Island Commuter plan something with the EZ Pass?

    This is all assuming Sector NY is even on your list to pick from...There's no way to know what will be on there, so no need to put the horse before the cart.
    Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.

    FloridaGirl pretty much nails it, but for the sake of answering the questions, the staten island plan is part of the EZ pass system, once here you would just call EZ Pass and tell them you want the Staten Island Commuter plan, as for the the reimbursement for public transportation, every month you fill out a reimbursement form and then turn it in and you are reimbursemed through your pay...
