We are going to ride three different rail lines around the New York/North Jersey area that opened or reopened in the past 5 weeks. The date will be this Sunday, 12/21/03.
We will ride NJ TRANSIT's HBLRT extension to 22nd Street in Bayonne, then the PATH to the World Trade Center station, and then take the A train to Howard Beach to catch the AirTrain JFK. We will ride the Howard Beach, intra-Airport, and Jamaica branches of the AirTrain JFK, ending up in Jamaica. That will put us in Jamaica at lunchtime, which we can observe at our leisure. Those going back to NJ and other points by rail can take either the E train or the LIRR to New York Penn Station.
Michael and I will be arriving at Newark Penn Station about 9:32 AM on NJT. Meet us there around then, and we will depart on PATH for Exchange Place at 9:45 AM. If coming from New York you can take the PATH from the WTC station to Exchange Place and meet us there around 10:05 AM.
Please join us on the rails for some new (or rebuilt) trackage!!
