The 7 train is about to ruin your life

Written by

Remember how excited you were just a few months ago when the 7 train extension landed at shiny new Hudson Yards? Welp, your euphoria about that particular train is about to take a hit: According to NBC New York, the 7 will be out of service for eight weekends in 2016 (which, to be fair is fewer than usual. But still…annoying). 

The service interruptions are to make capital improvements (like replacing old tracks), so we'll allow it, and on the upside there'll be shuttle service from Times Square to Hudson Yards, as well as buses to Queensboro Plaza, Court Square, Hunters Point Avenue and Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue. 

If you're the planning type, the affected weekends are:

Jan. 22-25

March 18-21

April 1-4

April 15-18

Oct. 21-24

Oct. 28-31

Nov. 11-14

Nov. 18-21

We say treat yourself to some extra 7 train rides right now, while you can! Live a little, New York.
