President Barack Obama will be in the city today to visit the World Trade Center before raising some more campaign cash, meaning New Yorkers should once again expect transit and traffic delays.
The president will join Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Governor Andrew Cuomo to check out rebuilding efforts and tour One World Trade Center.
Obama will also sign a beam that will be installed in the building.
It's the president's first visit to the site since the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.
After his tour, the president will attend two fundraisers; one at the Manhattan home of actress Sarah Jessica Parker, the other at the Plaza Hotel.
According to the Port Authority, PATH service to and from the World Trade Center site will be subject to suspension for an undetermined period of time between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Commuters are urged to take the A, C or E train from Chambers Street to Penn Station or the R subway line from the Cortlandt Street station to the 33rd Street PATH station.
New Jersey Transit will cross-honor PATH tickets for trips back to New Jersey.
Street traffic in and around Manhattan will also be affected.
