This Week’s B & Q Subway Service Changes


B train subway summer
For those of you who haven’t jumped town this week,  hopefully you’re getting to take the subway to, say, the beach and not work! But, wherever you’re going, the planned changes don’t look too brutal. Nothing is planned for the B, but take note that, beginning Wednesday, Coney Island-bound Q trains are running express from Prospect Park to Sheepshead Bay. Information via
