Does anyone know when 104St on the (J) will be back up? Also the next stations to get fixed?

Hold on, let’s start with 121 Street first (North bound)

Both the north and south bound platforms of 121 are technically up and running. The MTA likely will finish whatever work needs to be done at the southbound platform (which should've been completed in the first place but whatever), and the northbound platform's been running since late 2017. What'll happen next is anyone's guess...

SOMEONE REALLY HATES the (D) today. The conductor on the (N) was just yelling profanities about the (D) as we creeped into Atlantic Avenue–Barclays Center.

I think he's the embodiment of what all New Yorkers feel.

"Every f***ing time!"

"C'mon Delta! Stop clogging up the road."

This went on from there all the way to the bridge with intermittent banging sounds from the inside. He was probably smashing something?

Are you sure? This past week the agency has been terminating the (J) at 121 Street and busing people over to Jamaica-Van Wyck on the (E) for service to Archer Avenue overnight due to construction.

He left the PA on or you heard him from the cab?

From the cab of course. Otherwise it would be on social media already.

That G.O. Hasn’t happened yet. And by boarded up i meant the tiles still have wooden boards covering them and the ends of the platform look like construction sites.

Some rail fans are not fans at all. I can gather some are vandalizing The cars. From carving out the ad wrapped R160’s (interior), chipping off the paint from the yellow looped stanchions, taking off number plates and taking off spec stickers... what’s next? Ripping off the floor mats?

Random thought:

Why can't the MTA or NYC DOT repave the streets under elevated structures like New Utrecht Avenue, Mc Donald Ave, Broadway etc?

Example:

6600 New Utrecht Ave
https://goo.gl/maps/9QDofd9xwoD2

I know that replacing them will ruin the structural support of the beams but why can't they at least try to fix it when they we're fixing the elevated beams and stations a couple of years back?

Street paving is the job of the NY City DOT, not the MTA.

Today I rode a (1) train from ... wherever the Shake Shack on Varick is up to 96th Street, and a (2) train caught up to us at Penn Station. At 50th Street, the 2 overtook the 1.

Then at 72nd, the 2 train was held in the station (next train was a (3) that was 10 minutes away) and my 1 train overtook it (the 1 was still running local.)

The winner to 96th Street: The (1) train.

i wish I was kidding, but this actually happened.

This happens all the time, for years.

My mistake. Well still, why are these streets never paved? They've literally been in the same condition since I was a child, and that was in the 90s...

Someone is making a board game based on the (L) shutdown lolol

 

Escape from hell? After watching this shit, I'd rather stay there....

I think we all get the point that the shutdown will be nightmarish for commuters, but this was a god awful way of portraying it.

That could be part of the problem. “It ain’t our job.”

It wouldn't be capitalism if someone isn't making money off a major inconvenience...
