The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which oversees the subway-like rail service, has not given the public any timetable for service restoration. But assuming the governor's estimate is a conservative one, that would mean PATH commuters in towns like Hoboken and Jersey City might have to find alternate means of getting into work through most of next week.(2)
Like Love Goes to Buildings on Fire, Will Hermes’ 2011 chronicle of NYC music between 1973 and 1977, Big Day Coming is as much a dizzyingly detailed map of the interrelations between Yo La Tengo’s members and their overall environment—which seem endless even before Jarnow lays his intensive research out. For example, the band’s habit of going way off-path while touring to find good restaurants, guided by Jane and Michael Stern’s book Roadfood, would inspire the bassist of late-’80s New York indie rockers Mofungo, Robert Sietsema, first to start the food zine Down the Hatch, then to pursue food writing full-time—which he’s been doing for more than a decade at the Village Voice.
