As some of the subway trains begun to move forward this morning at around 6am in NYC, Long Island City is still in a difficult spot. Here’s what we know so far:
- The N train is the only subway that works in and out of Long Island City (MTA fares have been waved)
- Buses are running on normal schedule, though expect major delays (and crowds)
- The East River Ferry is running today in Long Island City: The ferries will run on two modified routes: a northern loop, making stops at North Williamsburg, Long Island City, and East 34th Street; and a southern loop, making stops at North Williamsburg, Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO, and Wall Street/Pier 11. There will be free transfers at North Williamsburg. In addition, NY Waterway will continue to operate its free bus service from E34thStreet on a limited schedule throughout the day.
- There is a three-person HOV requirement for all cars crossing bridges into Manhattan. The limit for cabs and TLC vehicles, however, has been lifted.
- A shortage of gas at stations is being reported.
We’ll bring you more up-to-date news as the day progresses.
