March 30, 2013 Staff Report

The MTA cut weekend service between Queensboro Plaza and Manhattan from Dec. 29 through March 25.

The MTA said the closures were part of a four-year plan to install a new signaling system and make upgrades to the tunnel that goes below the East River.

Further service cuts are likely to take place this fall. However, a MTA spokesman was unable to provide any dates.

How long did it take to build the Empire State Bldg? I believe it was less than 2 years. Yet the dopes that run the MTA have been closing down the 7 train, for LONG stretches of time, since I arrived in this neighborhood in ’99

For the last two years it’s been A-OK during all of baseball season and the US Open, then out the rest of the time on weekends. Think we can just bank on that again, though hopefully they will finish the job before the end of winter next year.

I swear, the 7 line is the gravy train to keep MTA busy. So tired of this!
