Despite its state of decay I simply have to share this piece. It gave me a smile during today’s lengthy peregrinations. What’s more it illustrates all too well that one (albeit green) man’s mode of transportation is another (green) man’s plaything. In this case: a frisbee. Poor little guys!

G Is For…

Gee, where the hell is it?

The above-depicted is a map the MTA has issued apprising its patrons of subway service slated to be restored tomorrow, November 1st, 2012. As you can see our beloved Crosstown Local is, um, MIA. Or would that be MII (Missing In Inaction)? In any case, those of you who have been enjoying a furlough from your daily commute (and want to forward it to your supervisors) can grab the link for this map by clicking here.*

UPDATE, 7:25 p.m.: Here’s a Service Alert from the ever awesome Chair of Community Board 1’s Transportation Committee.

Thanks Willie!

UPDATE, 11:32 p.m.: I cannot believe I forgot that the East River Ferry will be resuming service tomorrow as well! You can view their schedule by clicking here.

 

*Props go out to the incomparable Bitchcakes for bringing this to my attention. Thanks!

You may be interested in this website…

To wit I replied:

Ha! This is awesome!!! Who do I send updates/images to???

Check out this roster of Bloomblight for yourself, north Brooklynites—and perhaps bring it to the attention of your elected officials?
