Some Good Commuting News for a Change

Path trainDespite the wind and rain this morning, at least the Montclair-Boonton line train service was back on schedule, following yesterday’s train-truck collision in Little Falls.

In other welcome commuting news, direct PATH service was re-opened yesterday between Hoboken and the World Trade Center for the first time since Hurricane Sandy. Overnight PATH service between Newark and World Trade Center was also restored earlier in the week.

As if that isn’t enough good commuting news, the lobby waiting area at Hoboken station is now open again, providing at least warmth and shelter to cold, waiting riders – though it will be another couple of months until the classic wooden benches return, ticket counters open, and restrooms are once again available. Still, many train commuters are happy to at least have a place to wait out of the chill of concrete platforms, back inside under the historic carved ceiling and decorative windows.

And how is your commute so far today?

Stopped by on opening day to take out a dozen empanadas. Very welcoming space, especially with the storefront glass open on a warm spring day and sidewalk tables available; and, the staff were warm and engaged. The empanadas are soft and pastry-like, rather than the harder crisper type. They got a thumbs up from the Morales family, who loves them a good empanada!
