"An air traffic controller making a personal phone call initially failed to warn a small plane of other aircraft in its path and then tried unsuccessfully to contact the pilot, federal safety officials said Friday. Moments later, the plane collided with a tour helicopter over the Hudson River, killing nine people."

The article states that he was told to contact Newark but then lays blame with the TEB controller for not calling traffic which he isn't obligated to do. It sounds like the pilot failed to call EWR switched to unicom and all was hopeless from the perspective of ATC.

According to this article, the tower controller was talking to the airport operations office about a dead cat on a taxiway, a task which should have been handled by the absent supervisor.
