Subway Service Alerts: Brooklyn Heights and Vicinity

This weekend, from 11:45 PM Friday, February 23 to 5:00 AM Monday, February 26, we have the usual, until some time this summer, cancellation of 2 or 3 train service in either direction (meaning no service at Clark Street or on the 2/3 platforms at Borough Hall). As usual, during the absence of 2/3 service, 4 and 5 (5 trains don’t usually serve Brooklyn on weekends) will provide alternate service to and into Brooklyn. From 10:00 PM Saturday to 7:00 AM Sunday there will be extra Manhattan bound service at Court Street and at the N/R platforms at Jay Street-MetroTech, as both N and Q trains to Manhattan will be diverted to the R line during these hours.

The following work week — Monday, February 26 to Friday, March 2, each night from 9:45 PM to 5:00 AM — Brooklyn bound F trains will be diverted to the A/C line between West 4th Street and Jay Street-Metro Tech. This means no service from Manhattan to York Street in DUMBO; either use High Street and walk down the hill or go to Jay and catch a Manhattan bound F back to York. There will also be no Brooklyn bound service from the LES stations on the F: East Broadway, Delancey, Second Avenue, and Broadway-Lafayette. To get to Brooklyn from these stations, take a Manhattan bound F to West 4th and change there for a Brooklyn bound A. C, or F. Also, each night from 11:15 PM to 5:00 AM, there will be no Manhattan bound N service from either Court Street or Jay Street, as N trains, which normally run local in Brooklyn late at night, are being diverted to the express line over the Manhattan bridge between DeKalb Avenue and Canal Street. R trains will be running, but during these late night hours they only run between 95th Street in Bay Ridge and Whitehall Street, the first stop in lower Manhattan. To get to Manhattan above there, you’ll need to take a 2, 4, A, or F train.

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