NJ Transit Executive Director George Warrington said yesterday that the railroad would pay for the fence. That was the first time an NJ Transit official had said the railroad would be willing to put up a barrier at the site. Warrington, who has headed NJ Transit since May, said the stretch of track along Lawrence Street has been one of the three worst hot spots for pedestrian fatalities in NJ Transit's commuter rail system in the past 10 years.

He said the site would be one of the first two trouble spots fenced off under a new, $1 million-a-year program. The other site is next to a school in Perth Amboy, N.J. Fencing will be installed along the entire north side of the railroad tracks. An additional 400-foot stretch of fence will be installed along the south side of the tracks, behind a McDonald's restaurant parking lot where people often climb onto the tracks to cross to Lawrence Street, said Frank Vacca, chief engineer for NJ Transit. Schumer showed off a swatch of the fence at the news conference "I come from Brooklyn, and we climbed a lot of fences as kids," the senator said.

He said the proposed fence would be virtually impossible to climb. "You can't get a grip on it," Schumer said, showing a reporter that the fence had holes too small for a sneaker toe, and too sharpedged for fingers. online afTheJournalNews.com Search by name CAPARCO, ANTHONY Anthony Caparco, an exceptionally devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather passed peacefully at home, at the age of 93, surrounded by family and friends.
