As of the wee hours of Saturday morning, the V train is no longer: As part of the MTA's ongoing quest to save money, that line, along with the W, ceased operating (the M line will replace many V stops). In honor of the train's final day, NYCentric and Newmindspace hosted We Hardly Knew V, a send-off for the nine-year-old subway line. Orange-clad partiers lined up around 11:30pm to board the final operating V train at Lower East Side--Second Ave; they then partied in several of its cars all the way out to its final stop in Jamaica. V train, we're pouring one out for you right now.
