I try to type gap announcement at 14th St, but it was so sudden.

I tried today to see if I could catch announcement.

I not sure exactly, I think it was.

"This is 14th St-Union Square. Transfer is available to (4)(5)(L)(N)(Q)(R)(W). As you exit the train, please watch the gap between the platform and train."

Can someone corrected?
