New York City Subway Route Riddles

The (N) before the service switch with the (R)?

 

I have to agree that the line is the N as having worked in Queens and having the N go via 53rd Street and via 6th Avenue or via 60th Street and via Broadway. It ran express and also ran local in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Help me , I need to get outside because i need fresh air. I can breathe for a second as i breeze thru. Which route is this?

 

I'll go with the (G) again, since it's completely underground except for two stations in Brooklyn where it can breathe.

 

L and C are wrong

Good thing Tokkemon said (E) then... :)

Er... we already got the answer to that question -- although I agree it was poorly worded and a bit confusing when it talked about "express". The N running to Coney Island isn't a "special route".

You sir are the (R)... The whole "breathe for a second" shtick is clearly that oart between 59 St & Bay Ridge Av where you literally see about a second of sinlight passing over them South Brooklyn tracks

Fresh Pond you read me right as i use the word breeze. If i wrote i can breathe for up to minute or two, i would be on E train.

 

When is the E train ever outdoors?

Those were painted over years ago. Quite a shame actually, but what are you going to do?

Since its my turn, I might as well give a crack at it...

 

In my past life, I was flying down the express track in Brooklyn getting people to Midtown quickly. Although I'm not as fast as I used to be, I still get the job done and the future looks good for me

 

Who am I?

You are the (5).

Northern Terminals: Dyre Ave & Nerid Ave

Southern Terminals: Flatbush Ave, Bowling Green (And sometimes 125th Street, unless that (5) I boarded was just a put-in)

The Section north of E180th was part of a railroad.

Gets Rerouted on the 7th Ave IRT at times.

At night its a shuttle from E180th to Dyre Ave.

Not sure about the Movie Star part, Pelham 123?
