Oh, so this is why young, creative New Yorkers are moving to L.A.: At 8:51 a.m., the MTA alerted subway riders, "Due to a train with mechanical problems at Bedford Av, L trains are running with delays in both directions. Allow additional travel time."

From the commutertariat, who are especially angry, having spent the weekend without L train service:

Stalled train ahead of us = nowhere to go @gothamist

If you found this commute frustrating, tell your state representatives and Governor Cuomo to stop robbing the MTA of badly needed funding and figure out a way to come up with more cash for a 21st Century subway system.
