Did the Manhattan Bridge Re-Open yet, or is the (N) still using the Tunnel? Fancy that, Does Transit even know where their own routes run..

This is my service alert, here's the story.

I work at the A.G.'s office in the Equitable Building, which means I get off at Wall St on the 4/5. Well, today, I was late (I was going to get there on time, but to me, that's late). I had to keep turning back, and I missed my 5 train from New Lots. Well, when I got to Utica on my 3 train, there was an R62 4 train across the platform. I'm thinking it was my lucky day. We speeded through the Eastern Pkwy EXP & the Joralemon tunnels. We get to Bowling Green, I'm listening to some good music, and we wait a minute. And, woosh!, smoke fills the entire platform. Everyone runs out the train, I follow them. I am not good with smoke, so my next instinct is to run before I start to feel faint. I do, but through everyone else who seems to be moving at a leisurely pace for some reason. It's like, I know I would have a problem moving at that pace, so I had to keep moving. I get out the station and make sure I'm ok by taking a breath in the park nearby. The fire trucks run down Broadway & I walk to the Equitable Building. I'm doing fine for now, though.

Due to signal problems at the 190th Street Station, there is no (A) train service in both directions between the Inwood-207th Street Station and the 168th Street Station.

 

Please expect delays in service on the a trains at this time.

 

Inwood bound (A) trains aren't going to Inwood after all. What a hectic day today. Must be a hot and smoky day.
