NEW YORK (OCN) — Are you planning to travel on the PATH Trains? Well, getting around tonight will not be easy.
The PATH Train that provides service between the State of New York and New Jersey has been suspended due to fire. The suspension will affect trains that need to go to Hoboken from Journal Square and from Hoboken to 33rd Street.
Reports are that the fire was started from an electronic box inside the terminal wall at Christopher Street. It caused smoke and fortunately no injuries but did cause some damage which caused the interruption of service.
So what can riders do? The Newark and Hoboken lines heading to the World Trade Center are still working, so your best bet would be to grab one of those PATH Trains or from Newark’s Penn Station. You could also take an NJTransit train (NJ Transit is cross-honoring PATH tickets) to Penn Station.
From World Trade Center, you can take the “1” uptown train that goes along near where the PATH Trains stop (Christopher Street, 9th Street, 14th Street, 23rd Street, 34th Street)….you’ll just be under 7th Avenue instead of 6th Avenue (Avenue of the Americas)
