From The New York Shitty Inbox: G Train Buzz

I have received no less than two emails from my fellow citizens shocked and awed by what appears to be some semblance of maintenance at the Greenpoint Avenue stop of the Crosstown Local.

Cat (who took the photograph gracing the beginning of this post) writes in an email entitled “Subway improvement?!” :

Saw this happening on the Queens bound platform of the greenpoint station this morning. Im fairly certain you posted a pic of it a while back. Perhaps the shitty, dilapidated mosaic will get a makeover?

John (who took the above photograph) opines:

Hell freezes over and they fix the signage at the Greenpoint ave G stop!

Indeed. Although I will sort of miss the “repair” job they did by placing cement in the missing tile work and employing appears to be a Sharpie marker to fill in the black spaces. One simply does not see that kind of ingenuity every day. Unless of course he (or she) happens to ride the Crosstown Local!

  2. This brings up a good point. They’re always having disrupted G train service on evenings and weekends because of supposed track improvements, but nobody ever seems to be working on the tracks.

    Is there a website people can look at, or some other way, to find out exactly what these mysterious improvements that never seem to materialize are?

Tell me what you're thinking...
