Subway Service Alerts: Brooklyn Heights and Vicinity

Yet again, there are no planned cancellations, route changes, or station skips directly affecting service at any local stations this weekend, Friday evening, October 10 to Monday morning, October 13. If you’re traveling into Brooklyn, though, be aware that, just like the last four weekends, 2, 3, and 4 trains going in that direction won’t be stopping at Bergen Street, Grand Army Plaza, or Eastern Parkway. To get to these stations, you’ll need to ride to Franklin Avenue and catch a Manhattan bound train back to the skipped station. This will continue the following week, Monday, October 13 to Friday, October 17, between the hours of 11:45 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. During these late night hours, 3 trains will not be running in either direction.

For a longer range perspective, check this article from DNAinfo New York. In particular:

The 11201 zip code, which covers Downtown Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights, is getting more than $420 million in MTA repairs over the next five years, more than any other area in the city, according to MTA data. Most of the funding will go toward signal modernization projects at the Jay Street, York Street and Hoyt-Schermerhorn stations.

For planned service changes that may affect travel on other parts of the system, either during the weekend or the following week, see MTA Info or The Weekender.

    Actually, trains also bypassed Eastern Parkway last Wednesday as well.

    That’s right; the station skips have been going on late at night for several weeks.

    This happened to me Wednesday afternoon, on the way to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

    The MTA website shows these stations being skipped only late at night on weeknights. I’m not sure why they would be doing it during the day on Wednesday.
