Got this email today from a SUBWAYblogger reader.
I wanted to let you know about my blog – MTA Please Fix Jay.
It’s dedicated to the conditions at the Jay Street-Borough Hall subway station in Brooklyn.
There are a few issues to deal with at the station:
1. the interior condition is a disaster. Riders deserve to commute in a clean station. Jay Street epitomizes neglect and disrespect.
2. the condition of the MTA owned building above the station is a disaster and a waste of money. There is a sidewalk shed that has been there for a decade. In the midst of a budget crisis the MTA has a valuable asset that they have left vacant for a decade.
3. the lack of attention outside the station means that cars (MTA vehicles included) park in the bus stops, forcing buses to double park in bike lanes and forcing riders to board in the middle of the street.
The blog is sarcastic and a bit silly, but the points are serious ones. The MTA must serve us better.
