A light weekend of service advisories

By · Published in 2009

While the weekend changes due to track work are light, there are a few overall service changes to be aware of this weekend. Trains on Friday and Saturday will run on a Saturday schedule, but on Saturday night, Transit will provide additional service on the 1, C, L and the 42nd Street Shuttle after the fireworks from approximately 10 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.

Additionally, the Staten Island Ferry will not run from approximately 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. The last boat will leave the terminals at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, and the subsequent Staten Island-bound ferry will leave at 10:30 p.m. while the next Manhattan-bound boat won’t depart until 11:30 p.m.

    Why is the ferry not running? Are they doing trackwork in the water?

    I just realized that the Church Avenue extension gives all of Northern Brooklyn direct access to Ocean Parkway (well, it’s a few blocks away from Church Avenue). This means I can get on the subway with my bike in Greenpoint and get right to that great Greenway. And Church Avenue even has elevators, the only ones on the G.

    I’ll be taking advantage of this extension this afternoon!
