As Gothamist reported, the L train might be going out of service between Brooklyn and Manhattan for three years starting in late 2017. That would suck. For Brooklynites. But it’s kinda the best thing that ever happened to the East Village. Just saying.
While setbacks like this happen, and sometimes the addition of a subway line takes almost 100 years, the MTA isn’t all bad. It runs 24 hours a day in theory, many of the stations are courteous enough to maintain the minimum amount of oxygen to survive, and you’re basically saving the Earth one ride at a time. And by saving the Earth, I mean wiping the stupid grin off Uber CEO Travis Kalanick’s face.
So put your L train worries aside and enjoy some cold hard fun facts about the NYC subway.
