MTA Makes Some New Yorkers Angry

It was actually the very first time in one hundred year history of New York City’s 24-hour subway system, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority shut down some sections of our train lines overnight hours from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. four nights in a row to allow workers to clean up the miles of tracks.

Nearly one thousand workers cleaned roughly three miles of tracks and completed hundreds of tasks that they needed to finish. Back to normal? We'll see.

Meanwhile many New Yorkers had personal lives and work schedules disrupted and voiced their dissatisfaction of not being able to easily get around during these off hours.

MTA Officials say their next track maintenance will shut down the 1, 2 and 3 lines beginning the night of Feb. 13 through 5 a.m. on Feb. 17.
Oh no... It's deja vu all over again.
