The L train is back, according to MTA CEO and Chairman Joe Lhota’s personal Twitter feed. The line had been closed for more than a week due to Hurricane Sandy. Trains are running once every ten minutes according to @MTAInsider. Service resumed on the G train yesterday morning.
And just when you were starting to love your 45 minute wait on the L and G lines. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority unveiled on Monday four proposals for a scheduled fare increase next March, introducing the possibility of raising the base fare on subways and buses to $2.50 from $2.25 or increasing the cost of […]
Thursday seven art installations were unveiled at various Brooklyn subway stations along the D line. According to the New York Times, Almost all of the new works…are laminated glass windscreens that edge subway platforms above ground.” To see these “laminated glass windscreens”, check out all of the beautiful art exhibitions in this slide show, c/o […]
To RT @mattlemay, “You can tell that the L train is from Williamsburg because it doesn’t work.” Riiighhht? Here’s this weekend’s breakdown (ha. pun): Starting at 11:30pm Friday, June 17 to 5am Monday, June 20… (1) There are NO L trains between 8th Av and 14 St-Union Sq. Free shuttle buses will be provided. (2) Working L trains […]
This could prove useful, especially considering how the L train’s weekend “service” has seriously made us question the MTA’s sanity of late: the new East River Ferry, with three pickups in the Williamsburg/Greenpoint area (India St. in Greenpoint, N. 6th St. in N.

The L Magazine points out some rad artwork spotted on the G and M trains. The artist is apparently someone named Jilly Ballistic. You can check out more examples of the work on Flickr.
We love New York City for a number of reasons. Mostly because we’ve figured out our prewalk to every possible place we may be going, but also for the gems the city has to offer. Sure, The Cloisters and Socrates Sculpture Park are pretty rad… but we’re talking about truly hidden below ground. Now we […]
Tried to take the G train lately? Then most of this is probably no news for you. (Surprise! G train service is kinda sketchy!) But this sign is a pretty funny and poignant way to vent about it and really stick it to the MTA. (photo via here.)
Yep, the L was closed all frackin’ weekend for service, construction, and repairs. According to the MTA and many a Williamsburg working class hero, everything is as promised kosher come the start of this work week. If you’re not already painfully aware, the price of a ride is going up, so I suppose it is […]
The temperatures are dropping, but I’m still glad I can walk to work. Good luck to everybody else. The board of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority voted today to raise subway, bus, and commuter rail prices for the third time in three years. After all the changes and service cuts this past summer, you’d think the […]
