As train was approaching Houston St, "Attention passenger going to South Ferry, you must be on first five cars of this train. REAR CARS INCLUDING CONDUCTOR'S CARS WILLL NOT BE OPEN AT SOUTH FERRY STATION.

At Rector St, T/O ask me when I want to go and I told him, I'm going back to Chambers St.

First Five cars opened at South Ferry @ 11:27.

I was trying to rear car point of view to see if there was passenger in REAR FIVE CARS AND THERE WAS!. SEVEN PEOPLE WHO WERE CONFUSED!!

I pointed to poster on wall and now they understand. I told them after 12pm, all cars open.

Departed 11:31 and arrive Chambers St @ 11:36.

Enter New South Ferry Station and took front car of Bombadier R62A #2405 departed 12:09.

I wanted to see if R160 on (W) is updated.

Arrive Times Sq at 12:28.

There was announcement.

"Ladies & Gentlemen! There are new free transfer to (1) train at Whitehall St has been open today."

I went to 40th St end of BMT Broadway Downtown Platform for waiting for R160 (W).

When I exit, there was water main break on IRT 7th Av Line, so I took advance of ADA Elevator up to Street Level and use restroom inside the terminal b/c Whitehall St Station one was dirty.

I took advange of elevator back to new mezzaine level and enter Whitehall St via new terminal after took picture from top level of ferry building.

As I was walking toward Stone St end on uptown platform, I saw R160 (W) coming in and even that wasn't updaded yet.

I got front car of R46 Pullman (R) 5704 departed 13:49, arrive Times Sq-42nd St @ 14:23.

I forgot to add, I escorted passenger to M20 bus outside, but he took taxi instead.

I went back inside 14th St (1)(2)(3) and help while I was waiting for (1) train going back to South Ferry Terminal.

It was mad house at Chambers St and lots of passengers were confused and stranded. Even there was non English speaking Chinese who could not understand English was CONFUSED. i tried to help them with slow English or map, but they couldn't understand.

After not in servie (2) approach 14th St, then service restore with residual delays at 15:50.

At 15:55, (1) train pull over on express track. I got on 6th car #2206 and South Ferry local going express departed @ 15:58.

At Chambers St, people were still rushing for FIRST FIVE CARS, and I said, "All cars open at South Ferry." while female Conductor said, "You DO NOT HAVE TO CHANGE CARS. NEW STATION OPENS ALL CARS."

Same at Rector St and arrive back New South Ferry Terminal at 16:10.

Due to signal problem, I waited for (1) train and soon (1) train came with rear passengers were HAPPY and ran back in via excuse me, then boarded #2209 2nd car, then 1st car #2210 and departed 16:26.

Arrive Chambers St @ 16:29 because I saw (3) pull over at same time.

I got on Kawasaki R62A Bombadier #1626 departed 1632, arrive Times Sq @ 16:40.

When I walk down the 41st St passegeway tunnel from (A)(C)(E) to Times Sq, I always LOSE OUT OF CONTROL" and my leg cannot stop when I am on slanted slope.

I am listening, but I thought it was 10am.

Only when new thing open, I want to get there quick, but my guest at home wanted to go to JFK Airport to see TWA Terminal, so I left late and miss the <7> express when I approach Junction Blvd Staircase.

Police did not say anything when I was running/fast waliking to front/6th cars.
