It’s the S.O.S. for Heightsers this weekend, as the 2 and 3 trains will once again not run to or from Brooklyn, which means no service at Clark Street or on the 2/3 platform at Borough Hall, and the Manhattan bound A and C will again be diverted onto the F line from Jay Street to West 4th, which means no Manhattan bound service at High Street. Suggestions for coping follow the jump.
To get to destinations in lower Manhattan for which you would normally take the 2 or 3, use the 4, 5 (which, unlike most weekends, will be running to and from Brooklyn), R, or (late night) N, but not the Manhattan bound A or C, which will be running on the F line (i.e. through the Lower East Side) between Jay Street-MetroTech and West 4th Street. Brooklyn bound A and C trains will be running on their usual route, but won’t be stopping at Fulton Street, the last stop in Manhattan before High Street. Since there’s no Manhattan bound service at High Street, you North Heightsers will have to hike to Montague (Court Street) for the R or Borough Hall for the 4 or 5.
Treats: If you’re heading into Brooklyn, the 5 will replace the 2 to Flatbush Avenue-Brooklyn College, and the 4 will be extended to New Lots. Service on the G between Hoyt-Schermerhorn and Church Avenue will be restored. There are no diversions affecting service on the R or its late night replacement, the N.
