42nd Street (S) new seat color and cell phone underground Ques.

Recommended Posts

hey, decided to put two questions in one instead of making extra topics..

 

today while i went to 42nd street GCT on trk 1 (S) and i notice a no ad filled trk 1, when i went to see inside i saw that 1 side of the bucket seats were green and the other is blue.. How long has this been? Will it stay like that for the 62s or will the original style return?

 

Second is, i notice that my cell phone works on the (S) platform, i even saw some people using there phone at mott ave on the (4).. Did i miss sumin about the new communication system underground?

Brian's right about that. Most of the old stations can enable one to get reception because it's close to the street than the newer stations where they are 50-80 feet below the ground.

Well, it seems that the MTA is always experimenting something with the shuttle. I need to check this out for myself.

Atlantic Av to Nevins St on the (2)(3)(4)(5); either direction, always had reception.

 

Good one Zach! Anywhere south of Atlantic and you're out of luck. :confused:;)

Well Manhattan is the main attraction for tourists so the the MTA will do anything to attract them, and Manhattan is the best place.

The green/blue seats is for a NY Giants/NY Jets promotion, if you had paid attention and looked at the ADs you would have seen it.

Well they need all the money they can get, so anything to bring in revenue. I've seen buses with this as well.

86th Street on the (6)<6> and 96th Street on the (1)(2)(3) got reception also

 

86th Street seems unusual as it's a Dual Contracts station. 96th Street on the West Side is another as I made a call waiting or the downtown express there one time.

I doubt the lower level station may have reception because it is too far underground.

i also get some signal at stations near the street structure. Like Hunters Point (7), 3rd Ave (2)(5). Dunno if others could apply!
