Deborah, a graphic designer, asks...
Should there be an apostrophe after the - s' -in White Plains or should you add 's to White Plains for the following descriptive: There is a shuttle to the White Plains' Metro North Station Or should there be an "'s"
Anne answers...
There is no apostrophe at all, because you are using a title here and not a possessive. The correct description is: "There is a shuttle to the White Plains Metro North Station."
