Your Weekend Bushwick MTA Headache: J, M & L Will All Have Reduced Service

Who needs a mantra when you can just repeat “please allow additional travel time” while kicking stuff as you text your friends, family and boss telling them you’re going to be late to every single goddamn thing you have planned for this weekend?

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

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 L Train Update: L Is for “Like!” (But Not Love)

I know that after the sticky situation the L train got itself into yesterday, the last word one would associate with the MTA is “like

Weekly L Train Update: L Is for Lazy

Weekly L Train Update: L Is for Lazy

Oh, L train. Back on that September afternoon when I first heard of your laundry list of future service changes I have to admit that I never thought it would really last this long. Our rocky relationship has now spanned almost two months and we have been through it all – delays caused by track […]

Your Halloween Edition of the L Train Update: L Is for Losing My Mind

Your Halloween Edition of the L Train Update: L Is for Losing My Mind

What is more creepy, nerve-wracking and suspenseful than Halloween ghosts, ghouls and goblins? That’s right, the L train! Many weeks ago, when we first heard word of the L train becoming a bit wonky, I don’t think any of us expected our subway woes to continue for this long. Sadly, this week is no different […]
