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.

And these stops include:
– Journal Square
– Grove Street
– Christopher Street
– 9th Street
– 14th Street
– 23rd Street
– 33rd Street
