As a nor’easter wreaks havoc above ground this weekend, the MTA will be causing chaos in the subway below with a slew of service changes. The C train will be taking a break from running Saturday night on and the 7 won’t be running between Manhattan and Queens. G service is restricted with service coming in two parts, and Roosevelt Island – which has but a single subway station – will be left with no subway service whatsoever as the Roosevelt Island F train station spends the weekend closed for “electrical improvements”.

2 trains replace weekend 5 service between Dyre Av and E 180 St. Downtown 2 trains run local from 96 St to Times Sq-42 St. No 2 service between Brooklyn and Manhattan.

No G trains between Hoyt-Schermerhorn and Church Av. G trains operate in two sections, between Court Sq and Bedford-Nostrand Avs and between Bedford-Nostrand Avs and Hoyt-Schermerhorn, every 20 minutes.

Per the whims of the MTA, there will probably be other problems, and the problems stated above are subject to change and worsen.
