Subway Service Alerts

On this Easter/Passover weekend, there will be normal service on all trains serving all stations in Brooklyn Heights or nearby, with the following exceptions: (1) from 12:01 a.m. Saturday until 5 a.m. Monday, Manhattan bound F trains will take the A/C tracks from Jay Street/Metro Tech to West 4th Street (this means no Manhattan bound service at York Street in DUMBO, and to reach the stations at East Broadway, Delancey, 2nd Avenue, and Broadway-Lafayette, take an A, C or F from Jay or High Street to West 4th and take a Brooklyn bound F back from there); and (2) there is no Manhattan-bound R or (late night) N service at Court Street or Jay Street, although Manhattan-bound Q trains will be stopping at those stations. You can change from the Q to the R or N at Canal Street.

Those going into Manhattan on the C train should know that uptown trains will not be stopping at Spring, 23rd or 50th streets. E trains, to which you may change at Canal, 14th, or 42nd streets, will stop at these stations.

The following week, there will be no service in either direction on the 2 or 3 train at Clark Street between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., Monday to Friday. For those traveling into Brooklyn during these hours, go to Borough Hall, where the 4 train will be extended to New Lots Avenue, and the 5 will replace the 2. As on the weekend, there will be no Manhattan-bound late night N service at Court or Jay streets, but the Q train will stop there, and you can switch to the N at Canal Street.

    Thanks, Claude. I’m being addicted to these reports. Or to their appearance.

    Thanks Claude – these notices are so helpful. Regarding next week: the 2,3 will not stop at Clark, yet at Borough Hall, you mention the 2 will be replaced by the 5 – what about the 3 (will it be available on its usual route via Borough Hall)? Thank you again.

    Bette: the 3 train won’t be running at all between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. Monday night/Tuesday morning through Thursday night/Friday morning. The 5, which doesn’t normally serve Brooklyn late at night, will follow the route of the 2 train from Borough Hall into Brooklyn, and the 4, by having its route extended to New Lots, will replace the 3. The 4 and 5 will also be going from Borough Hall to Manhattan, but they will be following their usual route, not the 2/3 route.
