If you do take the subway this weekend to Manhattan be careful on the escalator and make sure you hold on to the railing. Last Sunday afternoon as I was going down the escalator by the wall
from the ground to mid level, while last second checking of my email before losing service, the escalator suddenly came to a screeching halt. I and several other riders were able to grab the handrail and nobody fell or were injured.
Fortunately, the escalator did not reverse direction as happened in this January 7 incident at the Path Exchange Place Station
Lesson learned -be alert on the escalator
