Explosions in NJ, NYC, September 2016

Editor's note: If you're just waking up or commuting in the New York City and New Jersey area today, here's the latest: Train service resumed on all Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast lines at 5:30 a.m. ET, but residual delays are expected as the investigation in Elizabeth, NJ, continues. Amtrak also says that Acela Express, Northeast Regional and other services will operate Monday with some schedule modifications, so passengers should expect cancellations and delays throughout the day. In Manhattan, West 23rd Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues remains closed as police continue their investigation into Saturday's explosion in Chelsea. PATH trains are skipping 23rd Street in Manhattan, and PATH will cross-honor New Jersey Transit passengers. MTA's 1, E and F trains have resumed normal stops at 23rd and 28th streets. - Rebecca
