A frustrated Gothamist commenter wants to know why the new M line isn't stopping at 2nd Avenue, particularly because "that station is always packed and now there's going to be even LESS service. Brutal." So we asked NYC Transit about the quirk, and a spokesman tells us, "If you look at the new map, you'll see the Chrystie St cut the M is taking to meet up with the 6th Ave corridor at Broadway/Lafayette. There's no other way for it to diverge from the Broadway Line (J,M,Z) corridor to merge with the 6th Ave (B,D,F—and now M) Line corridor. That, in a roundabout way, is why the M can't stop @ 2nd Ave." And that's one to grow on. Still sucks for the East Village, but at least it's not inexplicably brutal.
