So I had a back-and-forth with the MTA about these service advisories. I noted last week that the press office is no longer providing a reason for the changes, and as I said then, I and a few others liked seeing why our trains were rerouted, running local or being bustituted every weekend. The press office said to me that gathering all that information took up too much of their time, and so now we have service advisories without that information. I still prefer the added info.

Before I delve in, let me think to a Times piece on subway construction. You may think this would turn into a piece on why everything is so costly and takes so long and how initial planning for the Second Ave. Subway led to this foolish phased build-out, but you would be wrong. It is instead a piece of tropes that won’t die. West Siders want the 7 line extension; Upper East Siders are again complaining about subway construction. They’ll love the Second Ave. line once it opens, but for now you have people who didn’t adequately prepare for construction moaning about it. Same old, same old in the land of NIMBYs.

P123poster

A short while ago, I got home from a screening of The Warriors at BAM. This was the first showing of BAM’s Retro Metro film festival, and if tonight’s crowd is any indication, the series is going to be a huge hit. The 9:45 screening of The Warriors was packed, and I imagine Sunday’s screenings of The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 will be as well. I’m aiming to see the 2:30 showing. Say hi if you see me. Meanwhile, the full listings are on BAM’s site. Can you dig it?

As a note on the weekend service advisories, these always are sent to me by the MTA’s press office, and lately, they’ve removed the entrance sentence concerning why trains are rerouted. I’ve always enjoyed that line as it shows that the MTA is implementing these weekend changes for a reason, and I think omitting it creates a gap between the public’s understanding of what’s happening and the MTA’s need to make changes. I’ll see if I can find out why that information is no longer included with these emails. Meanwhile, here’s the extensive slate of changes.

If I have the opportunity to write more on Friday, I will. I haven’t had a chance to chime in on the endless re-blogging of I Quant NY’s claim that $19.05 is the best amount to use to fill a MetroCard. I’m unsurprisingly a bit skeptical that this is some kind of vital New York City lifehack. More on that later.

Meanwhile, the MTA hasn’t given any further word on the early opening of the Montague St. Tunnel, but I’ve heard service could be restored any time between Saturday night and Monday morning. I’ll of course let you know here and via my Twitter account when the opening is officially confirmed. For now, continue to assume BMT Broadway service will run via the Manhattan Bridge. And now onto the service changes for the upcoming weekend.

P123poster

It’s been a while since a classic movie about, or even with scenes in, the New York City subway hit theaters. The 2009 version of The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 is something everyone would rather ignore, and 1995′s Money Train drew headlines more for alleged copycats than for the quality of the film. Still, the classics remain the classics with the 1970s a particularly iconic decade for subway movies, and in a few weeks, you’ll be able to catch the big names on the silver screen.

As part of an early fall retrospective, BAMcinématek will be hosting Retro Metro, what they’re calling a 16-film ride through the history of the New York City subway. The Big 3 — The French Connection, The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, and opening night’s The Warriors — get top billing, and joining them will be a rare showing of The Incident as well as a dozen other films inspired by or filmed on the subways. There will be no Ghost, but you can catch Saturday Night Fever, Midnight Cowboy, and Just Another Girl on the I.R.T. along with Vincente Minnelli’s The Clock and the Gene Kelly classic On The Town.

The films run from Friday, September 26 through Sunday, October 5, and the full schedule is available in BAM’s press release. I’m aiming to catch The Incident on October 3, The Warriors on September 26, and perhaps The French Connection on October 5. If there’s interest, I may arrange a quasi-official Second Ave. Sagas outing to see the original Taking of Pelham One Two Three at 7 p.m. on Sunday, September 28. If you haven’t seen any of these movies, or even if you have, check them out. This will be a great festival.

Meanwhile, we have more pressing matters to attend to. I’m out of town for the Labor Day weekend, but the work doesn’t stop. Your service advisories after the jump, and remember to pay attention to travel patterns on Sunday as the West Indian-American Day Parade always causes some localized changes. Read More→

There’s a whole slate of weekend work ahead of us, but before we delve in, let’s take a second to discuss MetroCard Vending Machines. From 1 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. at the latest, MetroCard Vending Machines will not take credit or debit cards. The MTA is performing routine maintenance, and any fare transactions will be cash only. This should be great fun for those drunk riders trying to get home without a valid MetroCard. By Saturday morning, the system will be up and running, and Mayor de Blasio can continue to not pay his fares.
