Well, the NYC Subway system, for the first time in 107 years, will purposely shut down the NYC Transit System. Any thoughts?

Wow. Just Wow. Think of this. We have had massive snowstorms, 9/11 and an earthquake, and none of those could shut down this system. Hurricane Irene has clearly made some history.

This is NOT the 1st time the subway has shut down completely. There was an 11-day transit strike in 1980, so the entire system shut down for over a week. so, this is the 2nd time the subway has fully shut down.

Very true. Even techincally being, a 'cat. 1' storm it so different in fact she so 'big' and sadly I am not talking weight/body size. Irene would be as strong as a cat. 2 when she hits NYC late saturday.:eek:

Apples and oranges. This is the first time they've ordered a shutdown of the subway system.

 

@jimmy: Don't act so blasé about this. A hurricane is a hurricane is a hurricane, no matter how weak.

And don't forget the blackouts of 1965, 1977 and 2003.

It's the first time they've intentionally shutdown the system, and not have something else shut it down.
