It’s been a hellish week. A signal meltdown shut down 7 major subway lines, catastrophic flooding and power failure stranded hundreds of thousands. That’s why we’re rallying in front of MTA HQ for an emergency rally.

In the last 9 days, since the Midtown West power outage, the NYC subway has been melting down to Summer of Hell levels. Is this the fault of climate change, the electric utility, cyber hackers, or just an unfortunate combination of weather and bad luck?

Just so we understand this for the future — let’s suppose the signs were visible, how would the station manager and people on the platform know the last train has already passed? How does MTA disseminate info that they are waiting for nothing? Countdown clocks? Contractors?

Thanks for the explanation, JG. We entered the station around 9:40pm, and the station manager said trains were running from there to BK. So along with about 80 other people we waited for an express. Not sure why City Hall wasn’t sufficiently postered. No one said SB was finito!

At City Hall there were plenty of northbound trains on the local and express tracks. There were also five southbound trains on the local track, in the span that no southbound trains came on express track. What was the explanation, and why no indication before waiting on platform?

1) Climate change is making the planet less hospitable to human flourishing. 2) It’s still going to be a lot more hospital than fucking outer space where’s there no air or water. 3) Billionaires should spend money on mitigation/adaptation at home not deranged space fantasies.
