The L Train Will Be Fucked For Two Months

January 29, 2015 | Rhett Jones

The admins at Is The L Train Fucked will be able to set it and forget it for a little while, because the subway line will indeed be fucked for nine weeks.

From March 24 to May 22, the L will not run between 8th Avenue and Bedford Avenue from midnight to 5am, Tuesdays through Fridays. If that induces a shrug because you’re home safe and sound before midnight on the weekdays and do your late nights on the weekend then you’re still going to be screwed for over a month. From April 11 to May 18 the L train will be also be shut down on weekends (midnight on Saturdays to 5am on Mondays) between 8th Avenue and Bedford Avenue.

Why is this shuttle bus hell being thrust upon you? Track work. It’s always “track work.”

If you don’t live off of or need the L train then laugh at other people’s misfortune I guess. Say stuff like “haha stupid hipsters something pbr and vegan lol.” But don’t forget all of those regular people that live on the 11 non-gentrified Brooklyn stops in some of the poorest neighborhoods in the city. Yeah. They work night shift.
