On Monday, I brought you, kind patrons of the 15th St-Prospect Park station, the unfortunate news that your train service was about to be majorly fucked up for the next year-plus. We laughed! (Not really. Or at all.) We cried! We wanted to hurl things at the MTA/complaining yuppies, depending which side you were on! Today I come with a ray of hope--OK, a week of stalled despair.
Anarchy was supposed to start Monday, but because of possible snow this weekend, they're being pushed off until the following Monday, January 17th. So, we've got allegedly normal service this weekend, then shuttle busses next weekend, then the no service shit next Monday. Got it? K.
Also from WNYC, here's why, according to an NYC Transit spokesman, why you peeps didn't know jack about this in advance:
"We have found that if you put it up too early, people lose sight of it," Seaton said. "It's better to keep it fresh in people’s minds." That is also why, he said, there was no advance notice of the work on the agency's website under "planned service changes" for the F and G. Still, he didn't know why signs hadn't appeared only days before a major phase of the four-year project. Signs to announce the latest disruption will go up at the stations and in subway cars by this Saturday. He said there should also be "public announcements in the system."
So, he doesn't know. Cool. Anyway, I'm sick of talking about trains and the cold. I'm going to move to Dubai and buy a fucking Mercedes or something. In other news, here's an F train sushi thing to distract you.
