  1. When we went thru the PATH train/concourse connection last night, they were building some kind of structure outside the entrance. Thought it might be a protection against the falling ice. BTW I got caught going thru there during the incident Tuesday morning, and they assume everybody using it is going to/from New Jersey, so if you’re just going from BPC to West Broadway and not to the PATH, they don’t bother to let you know you can’t get out. If you see more people than usual going from east to west through the concourse, that’s your clue.
