Are you staying home today or getting out and being a warrior -- 'cuse me -- spartan?
but snoo the train and other trasports work?
Here is a little story Betty. Basically says some trains are stuck and not running. Busses -- some are, some aren't.
Some travelers in Queens who were lucky enough to catch the A train around 1 a.m. today became unlucky when the trains stopped moving.
They are still stuck on them, at least six hours later.
This is the case on a train that is presently at the Broad Channel station and another one at the Aqueduct station, said Charles Seaton, an M.T.A. spokesman.
"We're trying to get the trains out of there, but the trains are stuck in the stations," he said.
It could be worse. Because the trains are in stations, the passengers are able to get off to use the bathrooms.
The passengers are, of course, free to leave the train and take their chances in the outside world, but particularly in Broad Channel, "once you get off the train there's basically no place else to go," Mr. Seaton said.
There were similar strandings on the Q and D lines in Brooklyn earlier today, but they have been resolved, Mr. Seaton added.
A reader named Lauren McKeever wrote us at 2:30 a.m. that her sister and four-year-old asthmatic niece were stuck on a D train between 36th Street and Ninth Avenue in Brooklyn, only 10 feet out of the station, with no heat, and that train workers were not letting passengers off to use the bathrooms.
