From The New York Shitty Inbox: Live From Sunnyside

Contrary to what you, gentle readers, might think some transit employees really enjoy their work. Take this fellow: a driver for the Q32 for example!┬áPer Rose Sol, (one of the masterminds of Sol Sauce— I’ll add) who was kind enough to shoot the above footage:

Must be my lucky week! I got the singing bus driver three days in a row. Today was the Mr Rogers theme – Hi, neighbors!!

Awesome. Totally awesome…

BREAKING: Attempted Suicide On The G?

Those of you who have been wondering what all the activity is about at the Greenpoint and India Street entrances of the Crosstown Local— or are unaware that this is even coming to pass: I am very saddened to report that apparently someone jumped in front of an oncoming train. This is all I know presently. Those of you who are headed off for your evening commute and have to rely upon the G, the B43 or 62 buses should expect serious crowding and delays.

UPDATE, 6:30 p.m.: Here’s Gothamist’s take on what happened.

UPDATE, 7:05 p.m.: Here’s “Fox New’s” take.

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Preserve The G Train Extension!

This petition was brought to my attention by its creator: Lincoln Restler, Democratic State Committeeman for Brooklyn’s 50th Assembly District and all-around great guy. If you agree with me that this is one change the MTA has made that is worth keeping, please take a moment to sign this petition. Thanks!

A New York Shitty PSA: North ‘Point B62 Riders, You’re F*cked!

SINKHOLE?!? Wow. In any case those of you who live on the northern fringe of the 11222 and wish to ride the B62 bus will have to schlep to Greenpoint Avenue now. Of course there’s always the G train to consider. I have to see this sinkhole for myself.

To be continued…?

UPDATE, 3:30 p.m.: So I walked down there. Sure enough, there was a notice posted at the Green Street stop that B62 service was suspended indefinitely. However, when I walked down to Freeman Street at McGuinness Boulevard nary a sinkhole was to be found— and vehicular traffic was humming along as usual.

Am I missing something (other than not quite mastering the video function of my newish digital camera)?
