To be fair that was one platform going to NYC , its more busy heading South & West during the evening rush hour. Newark is the JCT between all the Railways in NJ , most ppl commuting by Rail pass through Newark either at Newark Penn or Newark Board Street. During the Morning commute its reverse , its the same with all the Highways.

how is it going with euro now? prices are the same? in slovenia we experienced price growth in service sector (e.g. hairdressing, restaurants..). for example, one haircut before euro was about 8-10 €, now is 15-20€.

Prices are the same. There is just one problem, that vacation for tourists from Poland and Cezch republic is now more expensive. But better now for people from Austria, Germany. They are always just in the capital for one or 2/3 days so it is not so important for growth.

I used to go to the barber shop: € 27 for just a haircut. But there are also hairdressers who will come to your house, it's significantly cheaper (I pay around € 14).

Chris can I ask you if in the Netherlands you experienced the same raise in prices shortly after the introduction of the euro? In Italy we certainly did: even if the official change was 1 € =(circa) 2000 lire, most of the times it feels like 1€=1000 lire...

Yes, mainly in the service sector (restaurants, bars, etc.) However, I don't feel the purchasing power really went downhill after the introduction of the euro. I don't think a 17-year old would've made 12 guilders an hour in 1998 stocking shelves in a supermarket. But they do make around € 5.50 now for that kind of work.

One also has to keep in mind the conversion rates were introduced 3 years before the actual introduction of the euro. In some cases, that would make a 10% difference in inflation alone. Some people are now still comparing prices with the guilder, complaining about the high prices, but never take into account a 12-year inflation (at 2% per year, this would make a 100*1.02^12 = 127 = 27% difference compared to 1998 prices.

You're right about that, but I meant to ask if you perceived a raise in prices shortly after the introduction of euro. For instance, a pizza margherita used to cost 4000-5000 lire (2-2.5 euro) in 2000, but 5 euro already in 2003. We felt this, like... overnight.
