Members of the community of the Riverdale section of the Bronx gathered above the site of the crash of a metro-north train to pray for the injured and the dead. Four passengers were killed and more than 60 injured when the commuter train heading to Manhattan from Poughkeepsie derailed Sunday morning near the Spuyten Duyvil station.
Commuters who rely on Metro-North trains to get to and from New York City will need to make adjustments to their regular travel plans. Expect reduced service on the Hudson Line between Poughkeepsie and Yonkers following Sunday's deadly train derailment in the Bronx.
