Come for the metal. Stay for the metal. By now you know the drill, so let’s just get to it.
Don’t forget that L train has forsaken us this weekend (and for the next 5 weekends afterwards). Fret not, for once that crushing realisation subsides you can perk up in the knowledge that any efforts to battle this inconvenience will be rewarded with some fine entertainment.
We’re not quite sure how the MTA justifies the fare hikes, given the shitty service and closures, but that’s what happens when an agency is run without any oversight: After enduring weeks of overnight closures that nixed L train service between Brooklyn and Manhattan, straphangers along that line trying to cross the East River on […]

In case you forgot, spring is basically being ruined by the fare-raising/surplus rockin‘ MTA, which plans to shut down L train service between Bedford and 8th Ave for SIX weekends beginning April 11. It seems like something like this happens every year, but this time around, local businesses are protesting the springtime service change. The […]
