The MTA has issued an advisory predicting "severe service disruptions," during the p.m. commute today, due to that big water main break at Central Park West and 106th Street. We're not really sure what this has to do with Radiohead playing Roseland, but for what it's worth: B and C train service has been suspended from end to end, while A train service is suspended between West 145th Street and 59th Street-Columbus Circle.
In addition, D trains are not running at all between 161st Street-Yankee Stadium in the Bronx and 34th Street-Herald Square in Manhattan. The MTA says "shuttle trains" will operate between 205th Street and 161st Street-Yankee Stadium on the Concourse line, and customers can utilize 4 train service to and from 161st Street. Shuttle trains will also provide service to A line customers between 207th Street and 168th Street.
But what about Yankee fans? There's a baseball game this afternoon! If you're reading this from the ballpark, you'll be glad to know that the Metro-North Railroad will also cross honor tickets at the Yankees-E.153rd Street station on trains returning to Harlem-125th Street and Grand Central Terminal. Or maybe take the 4; they're running extra trains.
Currently, tracks at stations from 103rd Street to 125th Street along Central Park West and St Nicholas Avenue are under water. The MTA has four pumps sucking 6,000 gallons of water a minute out of the system "to restore service as soon as possible." The MTA is sucking as hard as they can—please be patient!
