Home Service Advisories Can you tell me how to get, how to get anywhere?

Can you tell me how to get, how to get anywhere?

by Benjamin Kabak

I don’t know what inspired me to search YouTube for Sesame Street videos on the subway, but I did. You get to experience the results. This is a purely classic moment of Sesame Street from the 1970s. I think this is witty song writing at its best. Did kids really get it though?

But anyway, as Friday night approacheth, the end of normal subway service arrives. So without further Sesame Street nostalgia, I bring you the MTA’s weekend subway service advisories. The highlights are as they generally are these days. No 1 service between 14th St. and South Ferry; 2 and 3 trains are supposedly running local (but this wasn’t the case last weekend). There is still no 7 service from Manhattan to Queens, but worry not; Opening Day – and weekend 7 service – is just around the corner. The A is still weird; the L and G are running slower than usual which is hard to believe; and the C is running at all.

Good luck. See you on Monday.

Saw this video a while ago, but I’m still a fan. I love how the trains still like they did back in the 70’s (orange and gross). It’s totally a video that adults can appreciate more then kids.

I have not seen this since I was a little kid, but oddly enough I found myself humming it the other day… of course on the subway. SUB WAY!!
