Because it’s witchcraft: weekend changes for 16 subway lines

By · Published in 2016

Earlier this week, an amusing typo from New York City Transit’s official Twitter account left us with this gem of a service advisory.

I spent the week wondering if it was a Hermione-esque witch, one of the three witches from Macbeth or perhaps the Grand High Witch causing problems at 33rd St. Either way, it cleared up quickly. The same cannot be said of this weekend’s service changes. These come to me, as always from the MTA, and they may be incomplete or inaccurate. Check signs; listen to announcements.

    Whenever the C ends at 145th Street, it uses the middle track on the lower level used by the B and D trains.

    While the service notice does not specify, this is what actually happens!

  2. John says:

    If only the R train were going over the Manhattan Bridge, it would be a super express

    -express from 71 AV to Queens Plaza,
    Express from 34 St Herald Sq to Canal St,
    Over the Manhattan Bridge
    Express from Atlantic AV Barclays center to 59 St

    And it looks like the Broadway Express N is back southbound this weekend
