Dodged disaster

Turns out, we subway riders really got away lucky this morning.

There were major power outages on the New Jersey Transit lines and Amtrak. Trains just stopped dead iin their tracks (no pun intended…on maybe a little).

Usually, that means subway issues because people flood over on the PATH or other areas. The bottom line is that many train riders don’t end up at Penn Station because they found alternate ways to get in the city. So, they head to the subways once they get in town. Typically, big backups occur at the stations near PATH stations and major bus stops.

This morning though, there didn’t seem to be much of a subway crisis. Live from the subway, back to you in studio…
