Tomatoes & Trains, End of Summer in Brooklyn

Gothamist: “There will be no G train service between Court Square and Nassau Avenue all weekend. Jamaica Center-bound J trains will be running express from Myrtle Avenue to Broadway Junction on Saturday until 10 p.m. on Sunday. There will be no M service at all this weekend, and the L train will not run between 8th Avenue and 14th Street-Union Square.” See the rest of the transportation carnage beautifully detailed by the indefatigable Gothamist here.
