    I usually take the train into Hoboken and track 5 is by the entrance and exit to Hoboken/PATH and NYC waterway.

    This looks really, really bad. Serious structural damage and people are apparently trapped and got hit on the platform.

    Between this and the Philly Amtrak crash last year, the infrastructure is desperate for an upgrade.

    Too close for comfort, I'm usually in Hoboken around that time, taking the PATH.
