They are reached by the 24-hour PATH train, essentially a subway that is relatively modern and functional (in contrast to its famous neighbor). Mrs. Rapid Traveler said, “This is a real subway, like Hong Kong or Shanghai. It is clean, it has AC, I can understand the announcements.” More on PATH in a future post but a glance at the map shows that for less than the price of a NYC subway ticket, PATH provides fast access to the World Trade Center and 33rd St (Penn Station, Madison Square Garden, Empire State Building, Macy’s, etc). PATH is faster to these popular Manhattan areas than plenty of areas in Manhattan. The downside is that taxis are not cheap.
