Getting Around NYC From Greenpoint Post Hurricane Sandy – Updates

Here is an alarming map of the NYC transit system created by Zach Van Schouwen (Via Gothamist) and here is a link to the actual MTA Map, which is not as easy to read.

As you can see, there is no G at all and no L service into Lower Manhattan.

About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!
