Well it's been functioning pretty well, all things considered for the past 100 years.

The J is so bad. Stops at the edge of East New York, then you have a shuttle bus to the E train in Briarwood, then you go a measly one stop to Jamaica Station whenever the E train feels like arriving. We walked from the E train to Jamaica Station to take the LIRR to Hicksville for Round 1 and it was fckin' hot. No good way to cross that highway/parkway/w/e-way.

I might hold off on my Japanese arcade games for the summer and just play the pirated cabs at Chinatown Fair on Mott St. Can't save my scores though and the version is 2 whole games behind, ugh...

LOL why not? Aren’t the subway systems reverting back to the 70s and 80s? Looks like some passengers want the full experience! Bring them guardian angels while we’re at it. Heck, bring back the transit cop.

Yeah, I hate when I check the Weekender, plan accordingly, and yet there's still unmentioned changes to service on my planned route.

Ironically, the R train has been running marvelously lately on the late nights (and/or the service changes have been in my favor like running express), pretty much the first time in years!
