I pride myself on being very knowledgeable about all things mass transit in the region, especially the NYC Subway. When I post the “Service Diversions“, I always suggest printing them out or use your internet capable hand held device before traveling. So with great embarrassment, I must admit that I did not follow my own suggestions.
This past Friday, I was hanging out with one of the most awesome individuals I have ever known. We had just left Irving Plaza after seeing a concert & I decided we should head to a place I used to frequent years ago. So we walked to 23rd Street & hopped on the to Astor Place. When we reached 14th St-Union Square, they announced the next stop was Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall.
I completely forgot about the & running express between 14th St-Union Square & Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall due to work on the Broadway/Lafayette-to-Bleecker Street transfer connection.
So don’t be like me & forget to print out or access the diversions before heading to the subway. While the extra riding time was not a big deal, it could be if you need to be somewhere on time. I hope to never make that mistake again.
