Quicklink: G Is For Give Us Shuttle Bus Service!

Lincoln Restler, the co-author of this petition, writes:

In the wake of an unprecedented natural disaster, we are greatly appreciative of the MTA’s remarkable restoration of 84% of subway service. Yet we are extremely concerned about the lack of mass transit access for residents along the L and G subway lines. These trains are not redundant – but essential lifelines for hundreds of thousands of Brooklynites.

As we await the draining of these subway tunnels, we hope the MTA will swiftly expand bus service. We strongly suggest implementation of temporary shuttle bus service along the L and G routes to connect stranded residents to active subway lines.

Speaking as someone whose husband required three hours to get to work today*, I wholeheartedly concur. Sign it and share it, Greenpointers!

As opposed to our Mayor: his “commute” was a mere 25 minutes.

This comes from the 94th Precinct via an anonymous tipster:

The New York City Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance identifying the following (above — Ed. Note) individual wanted for a robbery which took place on June 9, 2012 at approx 0130 hours inside of the Lorimer Street “L” train in the confines of the 94 Pct. The suspect approached a F/25 grabbed her by the throat and removed her pocketbook.

Anyone who witnessed or has information about this crime should contact the 94th Precinct at (718) 383 – 3879 or send Captain Komar (who is acting “Chief” while D.I. Hurson is on vacation) an email at STEFAN.KOMAR (at) NYPD (dot) ORG


P.S.: While I am on the subject of the 94th Precinct, I have created a flyer for this adorable dog who is currently in their (air-conditioned) custody.
