How to Have Fun in the Subway This Morning

January 29th, 2009 · 4 Comments

If it’s not one thing, it’s another. This morning at 10:30 AM the New York Straphanger’s Camapign and Borough President Marty Markowitz are going to be having a “mock funeral” for M and R Lines. Now, if that doesn’t sound like a fun thing to do as opposed to sitting at one’s desk or in front of one’s laptop we don’t know what does. The fun will be happening at 10:30 at the Court Street Station on the M/R mezzanine at the Montague and Clinton Street enterance downtown. Per an email, there will be “Visuals inside the M and R Court Street station will include a bagpiper, memorial wreath, and a special ‘eulogy.'” Good times.

    Does this mean that they’ll be shutting down either M or R service at Court St? There was a similar event earlier this month, but I cant seem to find any other information about this one:
