A new passageway connecting the World Trade Center Path Station with the rest of the NYC subway is set to open at 5pm today. The Dey Street Passageway will provide PATH riders with a direct underground connection to the subway – specifically, the 2,3,4,5, A,C,J,Z and R lines.This will remove the need for riders to walk for blocks above ground to connect from the WTC PATH station to the rest of the subway system. Anyone who’s done this knows the area is filled with people – so this is a welcome addition for PATH riders.

We love seeing investment in infrastructure. History shows that it separates the cities that have gone bust with the cities that have seen revitalization and robust growth.
