Apparently there is a strange odor at the 53rd and 7th station that has caused it to be evacuated.
B, D, and E trains are bypassing the station at this time, and last we heard, passengers are not being allowed to enter the station. However, the MTA says the V train is running with residual delays. So I guess it’s at least partially open?
The strange odor is allegedly coming from a faulty elevator motor. Of course, that is no shock.
