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.
Patrolman Phil Caruso and lawyer Richard Hartman built the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association into an arrogant, insular, and wealthy institution that stands above the law and beyond scrutiny. Where is the $63 million a year in tax funds and union dues going? Only their friends know for sure.
“The essential hallmark of the Yankees has changed in the decade since George Steinbrenner purchased the club in 1973. By now, at every level in the organization — from the guard at the gate to the principal owner in his private box —the Yankees are marked by a broad streak of paranoia”
“Given that black folks make art and market it within white supremacist capitalist patriarchy, none of us can ignore the reality that any black person who wants to create a product with mass crossover appeal must do some serious soul-searching”
