New Art Space The Hollows Presents a Giant Sharpie Drawn Swirling Ceiling Mural

New Art Space The Hollows Presents a Giant Sharpie Drawn Swirling Ceiling Mural

The Hollows founders Piril Gunduz and Jessica Kingdon outside their gallery space. Photo by Alonzo Maciel. Finding The Hollows was not intentional. I was up late one night Craigslist surfing (hey, the “etc” jobs sometimes can be very entertaining to read) when I came across “Seeking Artists for a Permanent Ceiling Piece in Bushwick Art […]

Thrift Disco is Having a Swap Shop that Cher Horowitz Would Be Envious Of

Sure, Cher Horowitz had that super convenient outfit generator (see below and/or this video for reference if you’re clueless about Clueless) BUT she didn’t have a Thrift Disco Swap Shop

The Moment We Have All Been Waiting For: M Will Now be Running on Weekends! (Does Cartwheels)

The Moment We Have All Been Waiting For: M Will Now be Running on Weekends! (Does Cartwheels)

Yes! You read that right. Yes, the M train has now stuck to its word (circa July 2013, see below) and will be running its full course starting Sunday, June 8. Just when you thought summer in the the city couldn’t get any sweeter the M train decides to give us the most fabulous present […]

Your Weekly Train Update: Here We Go Again on Our Own

Your Weekly Train Update: Here We Go Again on Our Own

Upon initial glance of this weekend’s train service changes the first thing that popped into my mind was Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again” (I know, random, it has been a long week) but really…here [we] go again on our own: and with a little help from the L train. That is right – this weekend […]

Your Weekly Train Update: April Showers Have Brought…May Service Changes!

Your Weekly Train Update: April Showers Have Brought…May Service Changes!

Ooof! This is NOT our week – between the rain-a-thon just a couple of days ago and the L train’s slow daytime service, you would think there would be nowhere left to go but up, right? WRONG! You heard it – the M and J train will be skipping town this weekend and won’t be back until May 26 (for what? I do not know

Your Weekly Train Update: Endless “Service Change” Vortex

Your Weekly Train Update: Endless “Service Change” Vortex

Welcome to Bushwick- home of the repetitive subway service changes and interruptions! Week after week, the same service changes are going down- whether it is delays, skipped stops or suspended service. The worst part is there seems to be no end in sight (Noooooo…)! Last week there was some hope of the M and J getting […]

Your Weekly Train Update: Last Weekend of M & J Service Change Saga (Or Is It?)

Your Weekly Train Update: Last Weekend of M & J Service Change Saga (Or Is It?)

For the past few weeks, us Bushwick train-riding folk have been living in some wacky version of Groundhog Day (the movie, not the actual day – that would just be weird) meets some sort of vicious dejavu. Every weekend it has been the same deal – M decides to be realllllly slow and the J […]

It doesn’t matter if you have two left feet or if your white bellbottomed jumpsuit is stuck at the cleaners – you’ll still be able to get into the groove at the Thrift Disco

Weekly Train Update: Same Service Change, Different Day

Weekly Train Update: Same Service Change, Different Day

You know, by nature I am really an optimist – always looking on the bright side of things and making the best out of situations (unless I am hungry – that is a whole other state of mind I can’t even get into). But I am really starting to lose faith in the Bushwick trains […]

Your Weekly Train Update: The Service Changes That Just Keep on Giving (Us Headaches)

Well, looks like even Madonna moving into the neighborhood can’t even make the Bushwick trains run normal – and if The Madgesty can’t then who can? (If you don’t know I am kidding than you are a bit late to the game. Kidding about Madonna that is, not the trains. They unfortunately still suck). And not […]

Your Weekly Train Update: A Tale of Three (Incredibly Frustrating) Trains

Your Weekly Train Update: A Tale of Three (Incredibly Frustrating) Trains

Once upon a time there were three trains located in Bushwick (the Z is a figment of your imagination). Anyways, these aforementioned trains never showed up. The end. Okay, obviously the Bushwick subway saga is a lot more complicated than that and the above may be a dramatization. However, you can’t deny that the service […]

Your Weekly Train Update: Spring is for Sunshine, Flowers…and Service Interruptions!

So here is to warmweather and frustrating mass transit! Happy riding! Ahh the first day of Spring was yesterday – warmer temperatures, clearer skies and :record scratch: more train interruptions and service changes. I guess we can’t win them all. The only good part is that since the weather has become more ideal (I am […]

Your Weekly Train Update: Some Things Never Change (Unfortunately)

[contextly_auto_sidebar id=”w994BMLQTU4nxoPoogZCne2AA3r8riFq”] Looks like the L train (and M…and J) want to take part in Flashback Friday and revisit old service interruptions. It has gotten to the point where service changes are nothing out of the ordinary and instead of crossing my fingers that the Bushwick trains will be running smoothly each week/weekend I have […]

Your Weekly MTA Update: The Return of the Major Service Change

I am sorry to announce that the return of the freezing temperatures (last weekend was such a tease) will most likely not be the only thing getting on your nerves this weekend

Weekly Train Update: It’s Dejavu!

Weekly Train Update: It’s Dejavu!

Remember last week when the M train decided to end its service early between Myrtle Av and 71 Av? Or how last week (in the middle of the day) the L decided to really take its time and run only every 24 minutes between Broadway Junction and Rockaway Pkwy? Well, I hope you familiarized yourself […]

Hello there again! Didn’t think you would be seeing me twice in one day did you? Well, I want to share some pretty cool news that I just could not wait until next week to tell you

Your Weekly Train Update: M is for Maladjusted

I think the only thing that makes me more aggravated than technology (don’t get me started on the jammed “lock” button on my cellphone) may be the MTA subway–I am especially looking at you L and M (J train wins “Train of the Year” by default because it consistently actually shows up

Your Weekly Train Update: L is for Ludicrous!

Your Weekly Train Update: L is for Ludicrous!

This week L is for Ludicrous (no, don’t get excited, not Ludacris, although I do love you Luda!) because quite frankly the Bushwick trains can just be so ridiculous and foolish sometimes

Your Weekly L Train Update: L Is for Localized

Your Weekly L Train Update: L Is for Localized

Starting late-night this weekend, the L train will run in two sections: 8th Ave to Broadway Junction, and Broadway Junction to Rockaway Parkway, running only every 24 minutes between Broadway Junction and Rockaway Parkway

Your Weekly Train Update: L is for “Let it Snow!” (Or, Actually, Maybe Not)

The Bushwick train trio has had a pretty nice service streak as of late  – but of course something had to happen to rain (or snow) on their parade

Your Weekly Train Update: L is for “Loves It!”

Your Weekly Train Update: L is for “Loves It!”

Last week I just “Liked” (not “Loved!”) the MTA because, although there were no scheduled service changes, I was a bit skeptical of how service was actually going to be

Looks like the L train will never be “normal” and will continue to confuse us with its really random service changes and interruptions
