It's Tuesday, it's foggy, and the L and 7 trains are running with "good service," but in order for the MTA universe to stay in balance, some other ill-fated subway lines need to fall apart. This time, the N and Q trains are turning riders into tear-stained Twitter avatars, with service suspended between Queens and Manhattan for a solid chunk of the morning thanks to a smoke condition.

The MTA posted a service change alerting riders to suspended service between 57th Street-7th Avenue and Queensboro Plaza at around 9:06 a.m., though riders say they've been suffering onboard for the last hour or so. The agency tells us a smoke condition in the tube preventing them from running trains—they were able to resolve it, but there are EXTENSIVE delays, and the Twitterati are out in full force:


Things are moving preeeeeeeettttttyyyyy slllllooooooooowwwwwwllllllyyyy:


But there have been small moments of miracle:



In addition to woes on the N and Q, the MTA's website shows delays on the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, A, C, E, B, D, F, M and R trains, so if you haven't left for work yet, now's a good time to call in sick.
