There's a new way (old) way to get to Coney Island: The F & Q trains are up and running again, arriving at the new $280 million renovated Stillwell Avenue subway station. Before, the subway had been diverted to Brighton Beach, and the loss of F and Q service attributed to a 50% drop in business, according to one business owner. The N will return next year when construction is complete on the station, which includes a solar roof.
The Post also reports there will be new maps: "Trains with diamond designations like the A, B, D, M and 5 will be replaced with dotted lines on maps. Only the 6 and 7-Diamond will remain to signify express service." More information from the MTA. And for more about NYC subway, check out NYC Subway.
