PATH Crushed by Holiday Traffic

The Port Authority was, as expected, ill equipped to handle holiday crowds Sunday night. A crush of passengers at 33rd Street were corralled by transit police causing lines to form back to the Manhattan Mall and up stairs at the Herald Square entrance. Large crowds at other stations fought for position to board crowded cars.
When a PATH representative was asked why more trains had not been added for the holiday weekend, he simply responded that the next train would arrive soon, though it arrived at the regularly scheduled time.
