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”.
