Press Release Number: 188-2012
Members of the media who wish to cover the reopening of the PATH system tomorrow, November 6, can go to either the Journal Square Station in Jersey City or the 33rd Street Station in Manhattan between the hours of 5 a.m. to 7 a.m.
The Port Authority will provide photographers and videographers with a designated area at both stations, as cameras are not allowed behind the turnstiles, on the platforms or aboard trains.
Limited PATH service is being restored in both directions between New Jersey and New York from Journal Square to 33rd Street for the first time since significant flooding and power was lost throughout the system during Hurricane Sandy. Other stops will be at the Grove and Newport stations in New Jersey and the 14th Street and 23rd Street stations in Manhattan.
Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
Founded in 1921, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey builds, operates, and maintains many of the most important transportation and trade infrastructure assets in the country. The agency’s network of aviation, ground, rail, and seaport facilities is among the busiest in the country, supports more than 550,000 regional jobs, and generates more than $23 billion in annual wages and $80 billion in annual economic activity. The Port Authority also owns and manages the 16-acre World Trade Center site, where construction crews are building the iconic One World Trade Center, which is now the tallest skyscraper in New York. The Port Authority receives no tax revenue from either the state of New York or New Jersey or from the City of New York. The agency relies on revenues generated by facility users, tolls, fees and rents as well as loans, bond financing, and federal grants to fund its operations.
