As if commuting from Greenpoint were ever normal, there is no G train service and there is no timetable for restoring service. The L train is not running to Manhattan. Buses are running but are crowded. Expect delays on all subways tomorrow. East River Ferry is running but as of Sunday there is no word whether service from India St will be restored.

Our advice: take the bus, walk, ride your bike, or work from home.
