PATH entrance closure

2/15/2008:

Monday between 12:01am and 8:00am, the Hudson St. entrance to the PATH station will be closed. The alert says “essential electrical maintenance,” but I bet that’s just a fancy way to say “change the light bulbs.”

So disgruntled Hoboken commuters will have to walk a few extra steps to the Lackawanna entrance instead.

I will just go back to taking the 33rd street train every day and having a few extra stops on the way to Brooklyn. It would save no time to walk from West Broadway and get a $2 coffee on the way to the train, and there’s an Arab guy just outside the West 4th Street MTA station with great 75-cent cups of coffee.

“The Church Street entrance of the PATH World Trade Center station will CLOSE in mid-April. Please use the new PATH entrance at Vesey Street and West Broadway, one block west of Church Street. The new entrance is currently open to our customers.

This entrance relocation is necessary to allow for the continuation of World Trade Center construction. The new entrance at Vesey Street will remain open until the permanent PATH station is completed. ”

On a related note, it’s been 2 years next week since they stopped the weekend service Hoboken – WTC. The reason they gave was because they needed to accommodate the building of the foundations for the WTC site. I read a press release this week from the PA saying that the foundations are nearly complete. Does this mean that they will soon resume this service? Or are they hoping we forgot about the excuse they gave to cut back the service?

Oddly, since reopening the WTC station in 2004, the MTA and PATH are just making it more and more inconvenient to use that station. First they shut down the N station there. It was supposed to reopen Feb. 2007. Now I have heard a rumor that it may never reopen. They moved the stairs. They got rid of being able to walk properly on the Church Street sidewalks, Now they will move them again.

Also,for some reason, there has been no bagel/coffee cart outside the Trade Center for a couple of years now, and none nearby either. 😥

Re # 6: I read in a small blurb in the paper that this will be the only entrance at the WTC PATH for the next few years. They are closing the other entrance in a couple of weeks. I haven’t seen any PATH notice about this new entrance or the closing of the other one at all. I don’t know why they don’t keep people informed. It seems like this entrance is here to help with the new building that is there directly in front of the new PATH entrance.

I added a few more photos which you can see from the link in my post in # 5 above.

is that a new temporary station entrance? I liked the first temporary station with the cantilevered truss structure.
