PATH

PATH

The PATH is operated by the Port Authority of NY & NJ. After September 11, 2001, the system was forced to change its operations with WTC and Exchange Place stations being closed. The temporary World Trade Center station reopened in 2003. Construction for the new permanent station started in 2005. 

The 33rd St line is under 6th Avenue sandwiched by the 6th Ave IND Subway in NYC. The line remains underground in Jersey City and Hoboken. West of Journal Square the line runs on private right of way along side former PRR right-of-way to Exchange Place and later the NE Corridor of Amtrak. This is a great section for train watching along with great speed for a subway line. 

The PATH is a descended from the Hudson & Manhattan Railroad or H&M Tubes.
