Subway Service Alerts: Brooklyn Heights and Nearby

This long Labor Day weekend — Late Friday evening, September 1 through early Tuesday morning, September 5 — there will be no R train service in either direction at Court Street or at the N/R platforms at Jay Street-MetroTech. Nevertheless, there will be service in both directions at both locations all weekend, as N and Q trains will continue their do-si-do, with Manhattan bound Q trains running on the N/R line and N trains providing Brooklyn bound service all day and night, while Manhattan bound N trains are re-routed to the Q line. There will be less Manhattan bound service at High Street all weekend, but more at York Street in DUMBO, as Manhattan bound C trains will be re-routed to the F line between Jay Street-MetroTech and 34th Street-Herald Square. From early morning to late evening Saturday and from late morning to early evening Sunday 2 trains will be on a reduced schedule — every twelve minutes.

The following work week — Tuesday morning, September 5 through Friday evening, September 9 — late nights Tuesday to Wednesday, Wednesday to Thursday, and Thursday to Friday we will have the same situation as over the weekend at Court Street and at the N/R platforms at Jay Street-MetroTech; that is, no R service in either direction, Q trains providing Manhattan bound service and N trains Brooklyn bound. Late nights Tuesday to Wednesday and Wednesday to Thursday there will be no Brooklyn bound service at York Street in DUMBO but more at High Street, as F trains will be re-routed to the A/C linre from West 4th Street-Washington Square to Jay Street-MetroTech. F trains will be running less frequently, and R trains more frequently, during rush hours.
