Reader Contribution Du Jour: G Is For Genesis

I am certain by now many of you have noticed the new signage gracing the Smith – 9th bound entrances to our very own Crosstown Local. I was so gleeful at the prospect of our friends in south Brooklyn getting a taste— four years of it to be precise— of the G train experience I simply had to document this momentous event for posterity. What will they have to look forward to, you ask? I’d just as well prefer to let them find out. But the following, which comes courtesy of Holly, is a hint!


She writes:

Saw this yesterday morning on Smith/9th bound G platform at Nassau and thought of you…

Text reads: G enesis to Revelations – same wait

In a world where things are changing so fast I can barely keep up I find it curiously reassuring that the G is still the train I know and love. Yes, the Crosstown Local is unreliable— but it is consistent!
