First of all, section 134 was great. Right on the 5 yard line - gave us the ability to be next to the end zone but also see the plays down the sidelines as well. We were at the Patriots game earlier this season that went into overtime so we had plenty of face time with both team's offenses. The tunnel the Jets players run out of was straight across from our seats in the southeast corner of the stadium. The Patriots used the sideline to the left of our seats but you won't be able to see the players on the sideline all that well from here.
Second of all, this is a very generic stadium. Even though it's brand new and cost over a billion dollars, it still comes up short to AT&T Stadium, the Cowboys new stadium which had right about the same construction costs. And that place has a roof! How could they spend all that money on this place and it not have a retractable roof to keep fans warm and out of the elements?
This is a very accessible stadium via public transportation but it's still a lot to deal with. Riding the bus from the Port Authority may be the least stressful option. Parking will run you anywhere between $25-$35 and you could still be a half mile from the stadium and still paying that price. If you're riding the transit from Penn Station downtown, you'll have to switch trains with thousands upon thousands of other fans at Seacaucus. If you arrive two hours before kickoff, the crowds won't be nearly as bad and there are plenty of games and activities outside of the stadium for fans to do. The crowds after the game are when the transit and parking is at it's worst.

To give you an idea what the view of the field is like from section 134, here is a Youtube video shot from there during a Jets/Philadelphia Eagles game at Metlife Stadium.
