Ok, first there was the Poly meetup get together that I could not get to due to a major traffic jam in Queens. Now tonight, there is this major storm that KO's the subways in Queens (see below). I made it as far as the subway enterence of the 71st-Continental Avenue–Forest Hills station before I was stopped by all the people outside tellling me there are NO trains to Manhattan (E F R V at that stop). I just hope I am "allowed" to make the Poly meeting on the 16th.
This is more proof that what Brenda and I would say, that MTA stands for Messed-up Transit Authority)!
The following information was posted in the newyorkers community.
According to the Transit Authority, track flooding has knocked out or delayed subway service on several lines.
Service on the E, F, V and R are all suspended in Queens due to flooding at 36th Street; there is no 5 service south of E. 180th Street in the Bronx, also due to flooding; there is no 1 service between Times Square and 137th Street in Manhattan; and no 2 service between 110th Street and Times Square in Manhattan.
