Traveling from Manhatten to Hyde Park via train. I've looked at Amtrak and the Hudson/Metro North line. Anyone reccommend one over the other? They seem to be similar in travel time and cost. Thank you!

There is a train station right in downtown Hyde Park. I think the origin is Penn Station. It is the station that FDR often used during his lifetime.

Is there any public transport to the FDR museum and Vanderbilt Mansion? Renting a car isn't an option for me and I initially thought I'd be able to use the free shuttle, only to find out it doesn't operate in April when I'm there. Thanks in advance.
