Yes, the rumors are true. The G train will be suspended this Summer, BUT only between Long Island City and Nassau Ave. Still, this is going to be a huge inconvenience for commuters, especially for those Greenpointers who travel to Midtown daily via Court Square.
The suspension will take place from July 26 through Sept 1, “due to Sandy-related repairs.” The MTA is promising to resolve the situation with free shuttle service. But we all know how much of a sweaty clusterf*ck shuttle service can be.
If you’d like to air your grievances (and we’re sure you might have more than a few) there will be a Community Town Hall hosted by Senator Daniel Squadron on Thursday 4/3 @ The Polish Slavic Center (176 Java St) at 6pm. Be sure to adequately drill your elected officials, so that this shutdown doesn’t cause mass chaos on Nassau come Summertime.
