Shuttle Bus to Replace A Train


    If you ride the A Train in Brooklyn, you’ve probably already know about the construction that’s going to screw up your weekends for the next month or so. If you haven’t heard, here’s the deal: There will be no train service between Utica Avenue and Jay Street. In its place, there will be a shuttle bus running along Fulton Street — except where there’s street construction, between Bedford and Vanderbilt. Annoyed yet? You will be.

    The MTA recommends taking the L train from Broadway Junction into Manhattan. Allegedly, there will be extra service to compensate. For those unfamiliar, it’s 15 stops to Union Square, but it’s only 11 stops to Lorimer in Williamsburg. Take the opportunity to check out the newly opened Fette Seu or play video games at Barcade.Regardless of what you plan to do, expect to spend a lot more time in Brooklyn. — clay williams
