Tomorrow will be a hectic day for commuters as service delays & detours will affect both bus & subway service in Manhattan due to a visit from President Obama. Here are the complete details courtesy of a press release sent to me by the MTA:
President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit Manhattan on Tuesday, October 20, 2009. As a result, based on street closures (frozen zones) instituted by the U.S. Secret Service and the New York City Police Department, some local and express bus routes in Lower and Midtown Manhattan are expected to be either severely delayed or detoured during the afternoon and evening hours. In addition, some subway station entrances/exits may be temporarily closed.
