Are you sitting down? The F and G are stopping at 4th Avenue/9th Street…in BOTH directions. It’s a miracle!

Expect even more subway headaches on the weekends in the future as the MTA continues to tackle Hurricane Sandy-related repairs.

Back in 2011, the group found that 69% of the F train’s cars were clean. In 2013, though, only 37% were observed to be clean. This puts the F alongside eight

Happy spring, South Slope! Looks like Mother Nature is showing a rare bit of kindness, and honoring the day with temperatures in the mid 50s. Not too shabby. As for the weekend rails, though, expect more of the same when it comes to service changes around the area. Coney Island-bound F trains and Church Av-bound
