Weekend Subway Diversions

All good things come to an end, and so does our stretch of minimal weekend subway diversions affecting service to stations in or near Brooklyn Heights. This weekend, there’s no, repeat no, service on the 2 and 3 trains between Manhattan and Brooklyn, which means no service at all at Clark Street or on the 2/3 platform at Borough Hall. As a consolation, 5 trains, which usually don’t come to Brooklyn on weekends, will be doing so this weekend, and will replace 3 train service to New Lots if you’re traveling deep into Brooklyn. The 4 train will be running as usual. For travel to or from lower Manhattan, use the 4, 5, A, C, R, or (late at night) N. To get to or from the West Side, use the A or C for the Upper West Side, or these or the F, R, or (late night) N for the West Village, Chelsea or Midtown West.

Just like last weekend, Brooklyn bound F trains will be diverted to the A/C line between West 4th in Manhattan and Jay Street-Metro Tech. This means they’ll be skipping York Street but stopping at High Street. To get to DUMBO from Manhattan, either get off at High Street and take the short hike down the hill, or ride to Jay Street and change there for a Manhattan bound F back to York. To get to Brooklyn from the Lower East Side stops served by the F–West Broadway, Delancey, 2nd Avenue, and Broadway-Lafayette–take a Manhattan bound F to West 4th and change there for a Brooklyn bound A, C, or F. Also like last weekend, A (late night) and C trains will be skipping the Spring, 23rd, and 50th Street stops in Manhattan. You may get to these by riding to the next express stop (14th for Spring, 34th for 23rd, and 59th for 50th) and catching a Brooklyn bound train back to the skipped stop.

    I agree, thanks. The weekend trains are always a mystery, so it’s nice to have a clear outline here.
