The standing water is not to be believed unless you see it for yourself … and it stays that way for days. The trash cans are overflowing and they also can stay that way for quite a while.

Most around Montague St. are overflowing and being raided by squirrels on summer mornings.

Does that mean it’s paid in full? I know what “closed” means for the rest of us.

And Steve Levin should know, since by his vote he helped facilitate this strange twist on the usual buyer-seller relationship.

That said, that’s going to cast quite a shadow over the neighborhood in the morning.

Also sad that Long Island College Hospital gone. If the city had to sell any building, perhaps the House of Detention on Atlantic would have been the better thing to sell. I don’t think the neighborhood would have minded that.

If you hadn’t, I would have only learned there would be 2 service on the weekend before the 4th during the week before.

Nice try, not all Bloomie’s fault…though seems like this work could have started sooner…

And now we’re supposed to pay gazillion in repair costs and have our lives endlessly disrupted…and this according to millennial think is just what you have to expect to live here.

The preceding weekend (Friday evening, June 30 to Monday morning, July 3), the 2 should be running normally (this is an exception to the announced cancellation of 2/3 service for all weekends; it may apply on other holiday weekends as well) but the 3 will not run in either direction between 14th Street and New Lots Avenue.

Where are you getting your information from?
After 50+ years in NYC I can say say for sure, people have always been walking on the escalators, it’s nothing new.

They are not designed as a stairmaster for the self absorbed millennial scum working on thier fit bit stats. They also dont care if someone has a disability or gets vertigo. Hateful pigs.
