    Path Train Service Update - With List of Places To Help & Get Help in NY, NJ & Staten Island

     

    New Jersey is not only still suffering the Path Train that connects New Jersey to New York is still not working. I called the customer service at the Path Train and they are hoping to have it open by Monday but said they can not make any promises. The service rep did say that if you have an Unlimited Smart Link Card it will be adjusted and that you can get that adjustment be calling the 1-800 number on back of you smart link card or going to the website on the back of your smart link card. Commuters that had to get into the city have been riding the very crowded Ferryhttp://www.nywaterway.com/ferryroutesschedules.aspx

     

    Unfortunately, the Ferry doesn't run from all ports on the weekends but if on Monday the Path is still not running the Ferry may be your best option.

     

    If you have transportation and you are looking for ways to help or if you still need help here are some ways you can help & get help in Manhattan & the surrounding areas:

     

     

    In New York Call 311

     

    In New Jersey Call 211

     

    In Staten Island call   1-800-621-FEMA or go to

    http://www.fema.gov/sandy

     

     

    Monday November 5th from 10am - 2pm at the Fire House on 125th Street between Amsterdam & Morningside will be accepting CANNED GOODS & NON-Persisable items Including bottled water, FLASH LIGHTS & BATTIERS, clean warm clothes, clean towels, clean warm blankets. Captain Moiser & I have teamed up and I will collect them at this station & he and the firemen will make sure they get to people who are still suffering in Far Rockaway, Staten Island, and Jersey etc. If you can't make that time e-mail me at sandysurvivorhelp@gmail.com and I will set up a time to meet you there to collect them. DO NOT leave the supplies outside of the Firehouse as they may be taken by people who are unaware of what they are for.
