So they will securely store your bags for you there no issues? I've got the Star trip coming up in March and was thinking of doing exactly what you did. Store bags, go elsewhere for Brunch then come back and go. Any idea when the new lounge will open? I was at NYP last March when I did an Acela First Class trip and it was OK at best. Everything was working at least and the WiFi was really good, but it's really all about getting away from the main terminal crowd.
