Oh boy what a mess. Comments czarina Kaity Creasy just sent us this picture of the mob at Penn Station. But a Clever Commuter put out a message at 6:44 p.m. saying “Port Authority a disaster, stay away.”
Word from commuters is that train traffic is backed up because of several derailments. Some trains have been cancelled; others delayed by 20 minutes or more. Meanwhile wall-to-wall humans in the waiting room.
The 6:40 p.m. midtown direct train to Montclair is just now boarding at 7:08 p.m.
A later message from Clever Commuters at Port Authority said things “looked worse than it is,” and despite refusal to allow standees, “buses are arriving and leaving quickly.”
