    Family of Ellen Brody, driver in Metro-North crash, to sue

    Khurram Saeed and Hoa Nguyen 7:59 a.m. EDT May 5, 2015

    The family of Ellen Brody, the driver at the center of the deadliest crash in Metro-North history, plans to sue the railroad and others for her death, saying a badly-designed grade crossing that should have been closed years ago is to blame and not the mother of three.

    Her family has filed a notice of claim, the first step before a lawsuit can be pursued. It does not say how much they are seeking in damages.

    Brody, 49, of Edgemont, and five train passengers died in the crash.

    No Charges for Engineer in 2013 Fatal Metro-North Derailment
    By BENJAMIN MUELLERMAY 14, 2015

    The Bronx district attorney’s office said on Thursday that it would not file charges against the engineer who fell asleep at the switch of a Metro-North Railroad train in 2013, causing the train to hurtle off the rails in an accident that left four people dead.

    The engineer, William Rockefeller, who was later found to have obstructive sleep apnea, nodded off as the train approached one of the sharpest curves in the region’s rail system at 82 miles per hour. The speed limit through the curve was 30 m.p.h.

    Commuters lash into NJ Transit at first hike meeting


    NJ Transit employees and members of the Amalgamated Transit Union demonstrate against NJ Transit's proposed 9 percent fare hike and service cuts at a public hearing in Freehold Township Monday night. (Larry Higgs | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com)

    By Larry Higgs | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
    on May 19, 2015 at 7:53 AM, updated May 19, 2015 at 7:55 AM

    A young homeowner told NJ Transit officials that a proposed 9 percent fare increase would drive his family out of the state.

    Ken Ramsey of Matawan said he and his wife commute to New York, where they work for non-profits. They lived in an apartment, and saved their money to buy a modest house in which to raise their two-year-old son, he said.

    The fare increase that the couple would pay would be a staggering blow to the young family's tight budget, Ramsey said, adding they live paycheck-to-paycheck.

    Transforming Mobility on Long Island Requires the 'Third Track'

    Nancy Rauch Douzinas
    President, Rauch Foundation
    Posted: 05/14/2015 8:32 am EDT Updated: 05/14/2015 10:59 pm EDT

    Mobility is the key to revitalizing Long Island's economy: mobility within Long Island as well as to and from New York City and beyond. That includes far better reverse commuting -- to Long Island in the morning and back to New York City at night.

    Despite being the birthplace of the magnetic levitation train, which just set a world speed record in Japan at 375 miles per hour, Long Island is served in the 21st century by a railroad whose system of tracks is essentially the same as it was when it was laid out in the 19th century. Long Island's population was 50,000 then; it's now 3 million.
