Port Authority Bus Terminal closed due to overcrowding as snowstorm strikes

Station staff blocked off the entrance to the Port Authority Bus Terminal on the evening of November 15 due to severe overcrowding.

Five inches of snow was dumped on New York City, surprising commuters who were told in forecasts that they would be expecting only half an inch of snow.

Officials closed the doors to the terminal at around 5:15 pm, and commuters were advised to seek alternative forms of transportation.
