Presidential Visit Closes PATH Station

A visit by President Obama to the World Trade Center site this afternoon will close down the PATH station there for all of the afternoon commute.

The Port Authority will close the World Trade Center station from 3PM-6PM although that time frame is subject to change.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie , who has had harsh words for Obama during his national campaign appearances for Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, will join Obama for the tour. Christie described  Obama as “the most ill-prepared person to assume the presidency in my lifetime” during a campaign appearance in Kentucky.”

PATH suggests commuters take the A, C or E subway lines from Chambers Street to Penn Station or the R subway line from the Cortlandt Street station to the 33rd Street PATH station to make their way home.

NJ Transit will cross-honor PATH tickets for trips back to New Jersey.

During the closure, PATH trains on the Newark to World Trade Center line will terminate at the Grove Street Station, allowing passengers to transfer at Journal Square or Grove Street for the PATH line to 33rd Street in Manhattan. Passengers normally using the Exchange Place station will need to make the brief walk to or from Grove Street during this time.

Obama is scheduled to attend a fundraising event at the Manhattan home of Sarah Jessia Parker & husband Matthew Broderick on Thursday night.

PATH will run as many trains as possible from Journal Square and Hoboken to 33rd Street during the closure. Additionally, trains that normally operate between the World Trade Center and Hoboken will operate between Hoboken and Journal Square during this time.
