Weekend Subway Diversions

Brooklyn bound A and C trains will run on the F line from West 4th Street to Jay Street/Metrotech, and Manhattan bound F trains will run on the A/C line from Jay Street/Metrotech to West 4th Street, from 12:01 a.m. Saturday to 5:00 a.m. Monday. So, to get to Lower East Side stops on the F line, take an A, C, or F train to West 4th, and change to a Brooklyn bound A, C, or F train back to the skipped stop. To get to High Street from Manhattan, take an A, C, or F from West 4th to Jay Street and change for a Manhattan bound A, C, or F. To get to Brooklyn from lower Manhattan, it’s probably best to use the 2, 3, 4 or R train, all of which will be running normally.

As it has been for the past several weekends, there will be no service on the uptown A and C lines from 11:00 p.m. Friday until 5:00 a.m. Monday to the following Upper West Side stations: 72nd, 81st, 86th, 96th, 103rd, 110th, and 116th streets. Your best bet is to take a 2. 3, or 1 local to a nearby stop on Broadway. Service back to Brooklyn is not affected.

For those traveling into Brooklyn to Park Slope or Prospect Heights (including the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Museum, and Brooklyn Public Library main branch), your return trip will be complicated because the Manhattan bound 2, 3, and 4 trains will not be stopping at Bergen Street, Grand Army Plaza, or Eastern Parkway. To return to the Heights from these stations, take a 2, 3, or 4 to Franklin Avenue, and change to a Manhattan bound 2, 3, or 4 to Borough Hall or Clark Street.
