Hoboken One Year After Sandy - My9 New Jersey

Hoboken One Year After Sandy

Posted: Updated:
Hoboken, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy and while there is still a lot of work left to be done, the recovery efforts throughout the Garden State are to be commended.

One northern New Jersey town that was hit particularly hard was Hoboken, specifically the NJ Transit systems there that offer commuters easy access to and from New York City.

Fortunately, one year after the horrific storm that paralyzed the PATH, NJ Transit and light rail services, the town of Hoboken seems to have recovered quite nicely.

It originally took months to clear out trains from the flooded underground pathways and the water damage to these electric powered transit systems had to be completely replaced. Full services were eventually restored three months after Sandy hit, and today the convenience of a Hoboken commute is better than ever.

Mayor Dawn Zimmer said that the town has applied for both federal and state money to implement a massive plan to protect Hoboken from the water. “We are literally looking at every option to make sure we get this done. It is crucial for the future of Hoboken that we comprehensively protect the city of Hoboken,” she said.
