Subway Service Alerts: Brooklyn Heights and Nearby

This weekend — late night Friday, April 28 to early Monday morning, May 1 — there will be no service in either direction at High Street, as A and C trains will be re-routed to the F line between Jay Street-MetroTech and West 4th Street-Washington Square. This means much extra traffic at York Street in DUMBO. To reach A/C stations in lower Manhattan take 2, 3, 4, R, or N trains, all of which should be running normally, except that 2 trains will be running on a reduced schedule; once every twelve minutes.

The following work week — Monday, May 1 through Friday, May 5 — late nights Monday to Tuesday through Thursday to Friday, there will be no Manhattan Bound service at High Street, as Manhattan bound A and C trains will be re-routed to the F line between Jay street-MetroTech and West 4th Street-Washington Square.

These are the PLANNED service changes affecting service at local stations for this weekend and the following week. Always check MTA Info for unplanned service changes that may affect local service or service on other parts of your trip, or for planned service changes that affect stations to or from which you may be traveling. You can also get real time service alerts: register here.

    Yes, there are those YMMV words above – “Always check
    for unplanned service changes that may affect local service or service on other parts of your trip” – but Claude, you let me down yesterday. (Fortunately, on the “tail end” of a trip.)

    STAND WARNED – the “yellow” line (“R,” for sure) is weekend bypassing Court/BoroHall when coming from Manhattan. To make matters worse, it’s bypassing Lawrence AND Dekalb, too, … so one arrives at Atlantic Avenue more than a little discombobulated. (But you do go underground off the Manh. Bridge for what seemed like 10 minutes to wise you up, if you’re paying attention.)

    Not my first time with that “glitch,” of course, since the tunnel in question must have been o-o-s for 3 years or more post-Sandy, and after one of the longer in-station walks, one can catch a 2-3 or 4-5 back to the Heights.

    This wasn’t included in the MTA’s list of planned service changes for the R train, and still isn’t:

    Hmmm. Not sure – but think it IS likely – that this change in service IS slated to happen AGAIN the weekend of 5/5-5/7.

    Also, I don’t know whether this service might be of interest to others – and/or whether it’s more accurate/complete than the link Claude provided, but . . . FWIW:

    “The Yellow Line”? That’s something that tourists who don’t understand our name/number system would say.

    And if you’re color-blind…

  • Claude Scales

    It’s a Boston thing; all the lines there are named by their colors.

    Thanks for the link; I’ll add it to future posts.

    In my case, it’s the fact that the letters haven’t entirely effaced BMT & IRT in my ID’ing, PLUS the fact that the N sometimes – yeah, I could look it up – stops there, so I don’t think it’s R only.

    Then, too, one DOES know where to catch a Blue, Red or Green nearby.
