Overnight PATH cuts nightmare scenario for N.J. real estate

The change could also harm redevelopment plans for the Hoboken rail yards

A recent report by the Port Authority recommends that overnight PATH train service be cut. But some Hoboken and Jersey City residents and officials are firing back, arguing that proximity to New York City is a major selling point for living in the area.

Hoboken Councilman Ravinder Bhalla told NJ.com that he’s concerned the change could harm the market feasibility of a redevelopment plan for the Hoboken rail yards. The plan calls for a 2.2 million-square-foot mixed-use project at the “doorstep of the Hoboken PATH station,” Bhalla wrote in a letter.

“It is reasonable to believe this was done with the expectation that the Port Authority would continue to honor, if not grow, its PATH service commitments to accommodate the increased usage anticipated by the plan,” Bhalla said. [NJ.com] Christopher Cameron
