I'm familiar with the PATH employees (not personally, but in terms of where they generally are and what they wear) - thanks for the suggestion though!

This happened at Grove, and they aren't there - at least not on the platform or at the turnstiles - 100% of the time.

They are usually near the fare zone / turnstiles. They might blend in with the huge crowd these days at the WTC PATH station..

This man sat on the stairs during rush hour, when commuters were four abreast on the stairs. I nicely asked him to let me pass and was immediately told no and called a B. I mean really, a little decency would go a long way.

Never do your own policing, report the incident to a Passenger Information Agent they are the PATH employees in the red shirts and jackets. Or tell a Port Authority cop, they should be able to inform the person to move.

If you were having a medical emergency on a train, would you want to be yanked off and dumped on the platform?

(And yes, I also got stuck this morning.)




Actually, the MTA goes to great lengths to educate people about this and has always encouraged people to get off trains and onto platform to make it easier for help/assistance to reach you.


OK, let me clarify.

• I don't know the details. I only know that there was some kind of medical emergency, and a fairly long delay.

• I don't think anyone would say "in a medical emergency, the person having the problem should be yanked off the train ASAP so that other commuters won't be late."

I'd also hope most people would understand that it can take more than 30 seconds to deal with a passenger experiencing a medical issue.

• That said, the train is rather unlikely to stop any longer than is necessary.

As to MTA's policies, their going to "great lengths" is basically a poster on the subway, telling you to get off the train if you can -- and if you can't, you should get a transit employee to assist you. An informal summary of their policies, from the NYT:

Workers are instructed not to move riders who cannot walk off the train on their own and to wait for emergency medical workers to assess the patient. If the passenger can step off the train, someone else — a friend, a worker or a police officer — must stay until help arrives. Otherwise, the conductor must stay with the rider, and the train may have to be pulled out of service....

“It’s the golden rule,” he said. “If you got sick, would you want someone to step over you and say, ‘I’m late to get to Macy’s’?”


http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/24/nyr ... -sick-passenger.html?_r=0


We are not talking about 30s but close to an hour disruption today...

And more than the service disruption, it is a lack of communication that is frustrating. How long will this problem last? Should passengers consider taking the WTC instead?

I always thought "sick passenger" was code for "police presence", so as not to make people panic


That is my mis-quote, I should have said "medical emergency."

Being yanked and dumped sounds like extreme behavior from my fellow passengers, but yes, i'd want to get off the train as soon as possible.

Is it pretty much all stores that are opening this week?

I'm excited for Beer Table, which will become by far the easiest beer from which to access beers not distributed to NJ.

Right!? I walk through the Oculus every day to and from work, and have started to pay attention to the stores that are getting ready to open. I had hoped it would be something along the lines of Grand Central - higher end, yes, but accessible - O & Co., Papyrus. I'm really surprised to see the stores in the Oculus - Kate Spade, Gucci, Longines, etc. I agree - PA (or is it Westfield's decision) seems to have paid zero attention to the demographics of the PATH riders.

I'm curious what other people think - is this supposed to become a destination for the surrounding Wall Street crowd?


I hope it all flops and Westfield loses tons of money.


Why? Even if most 'common people' dont shop there, higher end retail means higher rents, and if they can make $1 billion of the $4 billion they spent back, they are at least on the way to charging retailers instead of commuters. Im sure they will squander that money but I would rather them get some income from someone who isnt the working class commuter or tax dollars to fund whatever it is they do.


It's not just rent! Most malls have intricate contracts with retailers that involve paying not just a monthly rent, but also a percentage of total sales. So, if this place is a runaway success, the PA could end up generating a ton of money not just in rents.

Also, the idea that this place will fail is silly, at best. Despite all the naysayers in here, this mall be a huge success. Downtown Manhattan now attracts a lot more tourists and even locals. More and more people are moving down there, and there will be tons of people coming to Westfield Place to shop.

Commuters will be able to stop and shop starting Tuesday in many of the 100 stores that surround the soccer field sized plaza of the World Trade Center Transportation hub.

Many of the Westfield Corporation's 100 stores and shops are scheduled to open at noon. A free family day celebration will be held by retailers until 6 p.m., along with hourly performances in the Oculus. PATH officials also will open entrances to the hub from Greenwich and Church streets at noon.

The Port Authority sold the 365,000 square feet of retail space to Westfield for $1.4 billion, said Steve Coleman, an authority spokesman. Westfield plans to open the majority of the 100 shops on Tuesday, with some others, such as Hawksmoor London steakhouse, Dior Cosmetics and H&M scheduled to open at a later date, the company said in a release.

Among the retailers opening next week is a coveted Apple Store, and many high-end retailers such as Hugo Boss, Kate Spade, London Jewelers, Breitling, and Eataly. A full list of stores can be found on Westfield's website.

Daily commuters will have several coffee shops to choose from including Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts and, of course, a Duane-Reade drug store.

The $4 billion transportation hub had a soft opening in March, followed by a late May ceremony to open a connection to New York City subway lines and additional PATH entrances opened in June.

By 2017, about 300,000 daily commuters, in addition to tourists and shoppers are expected to use the transportation hub, after it is connected to ferries and the World Financial Center.

for the record, I will shop here.

Probably just as much a play for the tourist swarm. What better way to honor the memorial and those who died in the 9/11 attacks than to buy some Ferragamo loafers!

Are Wall Streeters the target demographic or it it the foreigners who snap up NYC real estate at any price (some of whom are surely engaging in money laundering)?

Exactly! Just like so many places open by Times Square, or other high profile locations: they seldom make a profit. The mere location presence is meant to act as advertising for the brand/product. But, don't underestimate their sales volume. Some locations do make a ton of money, they just don't turn much of a profit because of the expenses involved. Regardless, they are considered a huge success if they can help grow brand awareness, and sales through other channels.

Why do both of you assume that the target customer for this mall is the average PATH rider?? Have either of you been to Brookfield Place? It is connected to the PATH via underground tunnel, but they sure as heck don't think of PATH commuters as their target demographic. It used to be a weird collection of meh restaurants, and average shops, and it sucked badly. They decided to make it into a destination shopping area with high end stores and good restaurants and it is more crowded now, and they seem to be doing just fine. Westfield Place is aiming for the same style of consumer and success. I am sure they will be successful. After all, they are right next to the WTC buildings, a stone throw away from Wall Street, and what has become an increasingly affluent area of town.

What's especially funny is the contrast with the massively douchey quote from the WTC architect about his structure being the highlight of the day for the many plebes who take the PATH. Really seems like no one associated with the PA knows what the hell they're doing.

The PA was clear from the beginning that this was aimed at high-end retailers. Foreign tourists (and wealthy Tribecans) will make it the next SoHo (or that's the hope, anyway). I was surprised to see that there are some mid-price stores at all (Devon and Blakely and Skechers are in the tunnel to Brookfield Place, and there's a Duane Reade somewhere in there).

Why would you think the PA will complete this project by the stated deadline? Call me jaded, but I am very much inclined to believe this will continue well into 2017. But, I guess time will tell.


I sure hope so. The increased frequency of WTC trains, along with the new WTC station, Fulton Center, etc, is super convenient... and I'm usually going to 14th or 33rd St. Sure, it costs a MetroCard swipe more, but it's faster to some places since there's no stop in Hoboken.

I've spent plenty of time looking around at my fellow PATH riders, and that's why I'm not buying the theory that the PA wants us walking by those ritzy new shops. Most of us won't be stopping by to pick up a Bulgari watch on our way to Lincoln Center.

Right!? I walk through the Oculus every day to and from work, and have started to pay attention to the stores that are getting ready to open. I had hoped it would be something along the lines of Grand Central - higher end, yes, but accessible - O & Co., Papyrus.
