MYFOXNY.COM/AP -

A worker for Metro-North Railroad was struck and killed by a train while working on tracks in Manhattan, said the MTA.

The nation's second-busiest railroad says it happened at 12:54 a.m. Monday at Park Avenue and East 106th Street.

The employee was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead. His identity wasn't released pending family notification.

About 50 passengers were aboard the train, the 12:47 a.m. from Grand Central Terminal bound for Poughkeepsie. The passengers were placed on another train and resumed their trip at 2:17 a.m.

The death is being investigated by Metro-North and MTA police.

Metro-North serves 281,000 riders a day in New York and Connecticut. It has experienced a spate of problems in the last year, including a derailment in the Bronx that killed four passengers.

    Homeless people still sleep under the Manhattan Bridge, but others who used to camp out near its base have been displaced by police and are now calling Park Avenue South home. Park Avenue South sits in one of the trendiest parts of Manhattan, with businesses, restaurants, hotels, and swank lofts. It's also the street corner home base of Tommy Lanfranchi and his domestic partner Nicole Kilroy, who've been in a methadone program for 10 years.
