    Add:

    Jamaica Bound E/F trains runs local from 21st street/Queens Plaza to 74th street-Jackson Heights.

    You forgot to add that to the list.

    I’m assuming that it to replace the rail that keeps breaking @ Roosevelt Ave

    From 11:45 p.m. Friday, February 1 to 5 a.m., Monday, February 4, downtown E trains skip 23rd Street and Spring Street due to cable work north of Jay Street-MetroTech.

    I take that to mean “the downtown E runs express between World Trade Center and 42 Street-PABT”.

    Anyways, why is the downtown C being rerouted via the F during that time?

    Ah, when the sheep panic in confusion. Was on a CI-bound F train today. Conductor makes an announcement that *all* F trains are going express, so a few folks jump off the train at Jay to wait at the platform for a local F train that won’t arrive for another 36 hours. And of course, my favorite: the folks who don’t pay attention and then panic when the train skips their stop and somehow have no clue how to get back to their stop.

    • Emily says:

      And then today, the F trains *were* running local. When I was on the way into Manhattan, there was a CI-bound F train at 4th ave, and then later I was walking under Smith-9th when a train went by on the local tracks. Work finished early?

    Talk about turning a Lemon into Lemonade. I had to take the ‘G” to Broadway for the first time ever (And it was much better than the ‘J” or ‘M”.) Why did I have to? The “F” Train was brutal today. I had to go to Queensbridge for an appointment, and the Train only ran towards Jamaica, so they expected people to go all the way to Roosevelt Avenue (While it ran Local)to head back to Manhattan (Ordinarily I would go to Delancey for the “J” to go to Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn). Thank God, I had an unlimited Metro Card, got off at 36th, took the “R” to the “E” to the “G” at Court Square to Broadway. I will be repeating this Monday except using the bus to Court Square for the “G” (Saves me a ton of time, that is for sure).

    • Alex C says:

      You realize they report all these service changes weeks in advance, right? The F train ran in both directions, one direction was detoured, and yes they expect you to plan accordingly on weekends when work is done to improve and maintain the subways. The subways don’t run on magic and there are limits on how much convenience can be provided during construction work.

    Shiut Down Stairwells?

    This is crazy talk.

    Loitering in Stairwells must be enforced.
    Who loiters? Cellphone Gabbers, Smokers, and nutjobs who sit on the staircase.

    Cellphone gabbers won’t be a problem if they get reception on the platforms ….
