This will probably be the last post-Sandy transportation post of its kind. Unless, of course, the H Train in the Rockaways becomes a permanent thing.
Shuttered due to Sandy, the PATH Train was barely functional until after Thanksgiving and only then was it running on a limited schedule in Downtown Manhattan and elsewhere. The picture featured on the top right was taken by the surveillance cameras at the Hoboken PATH stop mid-Frankenstorm. So, really, no further description is needed to ring out just how bad the damage was.
But last night, the PATH Train returned to full, round-the-clock service across Manhattan and New Jersey. The system’s restoration is a testament more so to New Jersey’s recovery, as most of the stops now online are in the storm-ravaged state.
And these stops include:
– Journal Square
– Grove Street
– Christopher Street
– 9th Street
– 14th Street
– 23rd Street
– 33rd Street
In addition, full 5am-10pm service is back between Hoboken to 33rd Street, Journal Square to 33rd Street and Newark to the World Trade Center.
