There used to be a branch line off the Harlem Line just north of Melrose station that went down to Hunts Point, where you could reverse onto the Hell Gate Line.

Alternatively, there would be the Car Float option. I seem to recall that one of the Bronx Terminals actually wasn't landlocked and connected to the NYC. From there, you go to Greenpoint or Communipaw and take the NEC or the Royal Blue Line.

Or one could go down the Maybrook line via Poughkeepsie and take the Lehigh and Hudson River to New Jersey.

Today, one could just reverse down the West Side Line into Penn Station.

And... that's pretty much it.

Found a better route:

Up the Hudson Line to Spuyten Duyvil.

Around the missing leg of the wye onto the West Side Line.

Onto the car floats across the Hudson (West Side Line connected directly to NYC piers).

Offload at car float terminal in New Jersey.

Proceed as normal.

Wesmont train station in Wood-Ridge to open in May

Lisa Torbic, a spokeswoman for NJ Transit, confirmed the opening.

"NJ TRANSIT's goal and intent is to open Wesmont on May 15, which is when the next rail schedule change is going to take place,'' she said.

The train station sits on the Bergen County line, and it is mostly finished. It was conceived and built as the focal point of a larger effort to redevelop a 78-acre site that once was home to a Curtiss-Wright aircraft engine factory into a neighborhood of apartments, townhouses and shops.

Photos: Here's Penn Station On St. Patrick's Day

Those eager to get an early start on St. Patrick's Day swarmed through Penn Station Thursday afternoon, creating the kind of blindly exuberant scene that Midwestern college campuses endure pretty much every weekend.
