Big Bang Newark NJ – Post Nor’eastercane Sandy

In the wake of this week’s storm and the devastation of Lower Manhattan, I gathered what information I could regarding the area where the concert is to be held.  Everyone please pray for those people and families adversely affected by this superstorm.

AIRPORTS

According to CBS, some limited air travel is expected to return to the New York City metro area on Wednesday following the superstorm Sandy.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and Newark International Airport in New Jersey will open at 7 a.m. with limited service. They were closed in the storm.  It’s unclear what carriers will have flights operating.

“As airports ramp up service this week, passengers are strongly urged to confirm with their individual carriers regarding flight status in the coming days before traveling to the airports,” read a Port Authority statement, CBS New York station WCBS-TV reports.  PATH trains remain closed.

The Port Authority says some carriers would be landing planes with no passengers at JFK starting Tuesday night to be prepared for flights Wednesday.  New York’s LaGuardia Airport remains closed.

East Coast airports, including Washington’s Reagan National, were largely deserted for a second straight day as airlines cancelled 7,000 Tuesday flights, CBS News correspondent Bob Orr reports.

NEWARK

Thankfully, according to The Newark Post, the city was largely spared the effects of the Superstorm.

As of this posting the New Jersey Transit system website states that the light rail is currently closed but buses are scheduled to begin again this morning, and there will be limited ferry service across the NY waterways.  Since I was planning most of my BIG BANG travel over the rail, I will be closely monitoring this as developments happen.

Some useful links for NJ during this time:

THE PRUDENTIAL CENTER

I could find nothing that stated there was any damage to the building and, given the limited damage to the city, I will assume this time that the show will continue.  There are no cancellations showing on their website:  http://www.prucenter.com/
