We have gotten several emails inquiring about the state of the N line. After the Sea Beach line suffered extensive flooding during Hurricane Sandy, the train has not been operational.
Other MTA lines have also been inactive, like the L train and G train, but progress in getting them back on track seems to be moving along. Yet, no word was heard about the line that services most Bensonhurst and Bay Ridge riders.
We reached out to Kevin Ortiz, an MTA spokesperson, who told us that because of the flooding, most of the N lines operational services were damaged. This includes the tracks, signals and switches.
He also mentioned that they have crews there trying to get it to be operational as soon as possible.
While this is not much of a report for those stuck without a train nearby, we will continue to pester the MTA for updates.
Tell us, how have you been getting to work, school or otherwise without the N?
