59 percent of you want the L train to shut down completely

The L train shutdown is a real thing that’s really going to happen, and we’re faced with a bad option and an awful option: Should it close completely for a year, or should it have sections partially closed for three years? Real talk: We honestly don’t know which would be worse.

So while waiting anxiously for the MTA to make a final decision on the shutdown in the next three months, we made a super-official and serious Twitter poll to see what New Yorkers thought. The results are in!

As you can see, 59 percent of you think it should close completely and get it over with quickly, like ripping off a Band-Aid. We got a taste of the shutdown back in 2015, and it taught us a lot about ourselves and our patience levels. But hey, if it means more $5 Uber rides, it's not all bad, right?
