Flooded Subway Tunnels Could Disrupt Service For Long Period

Salt water inundation of subway tunnels between Brooklyn and Manhattan, which includes the 2/3, 4/5, A/C, F, and N/R lines serving Borough Hall, Clark Street, High Street, Jay Street-Metro Tech, York Street, and Court Street, could suspend service on those lines for an as yet undetermined period of time, according to this CBS News article. We’ll keep you posted on developments.

    Any idea how long subways will be out? Just a ballpark figure…… And if these lines are damaged, what other way is there to get to midtown manhattan?

    When the G line opens, you could take that to Metropolitan Ave. and transfer to the L, or keep going to Court Sq. and transfer to the 7.

    It’s also possible, though at this time it’s speculation, that, for example, R or N trains could run from Court Street to DeKalb Avenue, where you could change to a Manhattan bound train going over the bridge.

    Is it just me or does the Mayor think City Workers can fly. If there is no public transportation and many roads are closed how can we possibly make our way safely into the city to work!!!

    Do you work for the city or the mayor?

    i’m really surprised the news coverage has focused so heavily on fallen trees in NJ and hardly at all on city flooding and subways

    there have been few stories or pictures showing the subway stations, status or any information on what happened, flooded or didn’t, etc.

    is there a good source for this?
