And by fun, I mean it sucked big time.
The Brooklyn bound 2 and 3 trains were definitely not running, but I heard there were issues with the 4 and 5 too, which makes sense.
There was allegedly a power failure somewhere near the crossing from Manhattan to Brooklyn.
In any event, that meant there were no 2, 3, 4, or 5 trains going to Brooklyn. They all started turning around to come back uptown. Lovely.
They suggested taking the N, Q, R, W instead, but of course you would have needed to know that prior to 42nd Street to transfer. Then of course, once you got to Brooklyn, you were pretty much out of luck, but at least you made if off the island.
