Yesterday we reported that there would be no service to or from Brooklyn on the 2/3 line this weekend. Now, thanks to the Brooklyn Heights Association, we know that post-Sandy repair work to the tunnels connecting Brooklyn to Manhattan and vice versa will necessitate shutting down 2/3 service to and from Brooklyn each weekend (11:45 Friday to 5:00 AM Monday, or on holiday weekends until 5:00 AM Tuesday) until perhaps a year from now. This means no weekend service at Clark Street or on the 2/3 platforms at Borough Hall. By way of compensation, 5 train service, which doesn’t normally extend to and from Brooklyn on weekends, will serve Brooklyn on weekends during this time. For those traveling to or from the interior of Brooklyn, 4 and 5 trains will be serving the usual 2 and 3 stations.
