2008_08_7train.jpgWhile police are investigating an earlier shooting a the 5th Avenue Station, there is no No. 7 train service in both directions between the Queensboro Plaza Station and the Times Square-42nd Street Station. As an alternate, customers are advised to take the nearby "N," "R" and "W" trains to and from Manhattan.

Update: A reader wrote in that they saw 6 teenage males being detained by police at the 5th Avenue Station. There were sure to be large crowds in the area throughout the day with the Dominican Day Parade taking place nearby.
