    Well, congrats MTA. The F and G trains aren’t running between Church Ave and Jay street today. Thanks for the heads up. It’s not like it’s raining out or anything today.

    • Huh? Really? That’s not a planned service change.

      • ymbvpoy says:

        Yeah, I should have taken a picture of the sign, sorry. To the MTA’s credit, there were posted signs last night on the subway platform columns, but when I went on their web site this morning, there was no mention of it, so I thought maybe I had misread the notification.

      • Jerrold says:

        Ben, somewhat off-topic, but I’m putting this here for it to be seen.
        Do you know anything about the current plans for the Dey St. Passageway? I mean, are they waiting for 1 World Trade Center to be finished or for the Calatrava Center to be finished? (I assume that the former will happen long before the latter.)
        I don’t even know where to get info about this subject.
        Certainly not from the MTA website!

        • Berk32 says:

          Until 1 WTC and/or the PATH station are done – there is no reason to open it.

          • Jerrold says:

            But WHY is there no reason to open it?
            It is a link between two existing stations, Fulton St. and Cortlandt St.
            They had expressed fears that it would become a homeless hangout. By that logic, they might as well close down the entire subway system, all the railroad stations, and all the public parks.

            • Someone says:

              Who’s “they”?

            • Berk32 says:

              The tunnel wouldn’t be in fare control.

              It’s purpose isn’t to connect the Cortland St station to Fulton St – its to connect Fulton St to the WTC

              • D.R. Graham says:

                The tunnel is inside fare control. The original intent of the project was to connect via in system transfer the E and R trains from their respective stations to the Fulton Street complex. On the platform of the 4/5 southbound you see the white boards next to the Dey Street exit which will allow for passage to the R train.

                • Berk32 says:

                  It won’t be in fare control when it’s completed.

                  Right now they’re using the small part of it under the R tracks for access to the southbound R platform access (since it has no open stairways to the street)

                  The R will connect to the E (and the A/C Chambers and 2/3 Park Pl) with a new/different connecting passage

        [Sorry, at first I put this post in the wrong place]

        Ben, somewhat off-topic, but I’m putting this here for it to be seen.

          • Jerrold says:

            Epson,I believe you of course, but because I am interested in this subject, could you please give me a link to whatever site has that information?
            I would like to read more about it.

            • Someone says:

              Actually it’s 2015.

              For years, Metropolitan Transportation Authority construction and planning schedules have pegged November 2012 as the time for the opening of a new underground connection between the Fulton Center subway complex at Broadway in lower Manhattan and the Cortlandt St. station on the eastern edge of the World Trade Center site…
              Yet transit officials now say they plan to keep the Dey St. Concourse padlocked — for several years. The official reason: Few riders will make use of the free transfer. The demand, officials say, will come when the new office towers being built at Ground Zero are completed and occupied, and the Port Authority finishes its permanent — and extravagant — PATH hub. That’s will be in 2015. Maybe. “The small number of people we believe would use the transfer . . . does not justify the expense of opening, maintaining and policing the passage,” MTA spokesman Adam Lisberg explained.
              Incredibly, the MTA says an analysis concluded that if the tunnel were to open as initially planned, just five people an hour would want to use the walkway and make a free transfer between the R train at Cortlandt. St. and the many lines running through Fulton Center. So, then, who will come? The homeless — at least that’s the MTA’s fear. The concern is that the brand-spanking-new concourse might become an encampment for the poor, unmoored souls you see huddled in doorways in the city or standing outside soup kitchens.

              So you see, Epson45 was incorrect.
