Emilie Miyauchi of Ossining says she's lucky to be a survivor of the Dec. 1 train derailment in the Bronx, but she paints for Journal News reporters Shawn Cohen and Greg Shillinglaw the terrible picture of how others near her didn't fare as well.
Watch her video interview with the Journal News above.
Many others who are luckier still and weren’t on the train that fateful day are forging ahead, creatively commuting to the city. The Wall Street Journal aptly said these commuters were soldiering on, which might be how the extra time and effort may feel.
The Wall Street Journal talked to several Ossining commuters in this article.
Croton-Harmon, a huge and usually bustling station, “is a commuter hub and I’ve never seen the train station so void of cars,” Elizabeth Ando, 60, of Croton told the WSJ. “They either drove in or stayed at home.”
