Following an Earlier Incident…

“Following an earlier incident 2,3,4 and 5 train service has resumed with residual delays.”

They kept telling us there was a “track event” at 138th street.  I was stuck on a 4 train for 20 minutes between 59th and 86th st.  I had it good though, the car had A.C.  The people waiting at 86th were not happy.  It was hot and they were packed on that platform.  I can’t even imagine the chaos behind the backup at Grand Central and Union Square.

I love NYC in the summer time!

Getting to Brooklyn Today was Fun!

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.
