No. 7 train service suspended this weekend

This weekend will be the first of five planned service suspensions on the No. 7 line. There will be no service on the train between Times Square and Queensboro Plaza beginning at 11:30 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. on Monday.

The suspension allows for the installation of a new signal system called CBTC – Communications Based Train Control.

The service suspensions will also take place during the weekends of October 28-31, November 4-6, November 11-14 and November 18-21.

Riders can use the E, F, N or Q trains to travel between Manhattan and Queens. Free shuttle bus service will be provided between Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue and Queensboro Plaza. Q train service will be extended to and from Astoria-Ditmars Blvd. during the daytime hours. In Manhattan, the 42nd Street S shuttle will operate overnight throughout the weekend.

No garbage pickup on Columbus Day

In observance of Columbus Day on Monday, October 10, there will be no garbage or recycling collection or street cleaning.

Alternate side parking will be suspended on Columbus Day and post offices will be closed.

Residents who normally receive Monday garbage collection should place their trash out at curbside Monday after 5 p.m. for pickup. Those receiving Monday recycling collection will not have their recycling picked up until the following Monday, October 17.
