Straphangers relying on the subway to get home are in for a stressful commute Tuesday night.
The MTA announced that due to rail conditions south of Queensboro Plaza on the N and Q lines and south of 5th Avenue on the N,Q and R lines service between Queens and Manhattan will be affected during the evening rush hour.
Commuters who are traveling between Manhattan and Brooklyn should expect delays in both directions.
Before heading to the subway station, riders should keep the following in mind:
There is no N or Q service between Queens and Manhattan in both directions. Commuters should use the 7 train and transfer to a shuttle train at Queensboro Plaza.
There is no southbound service at Lexington-59 St or 5 Avenue. Riders at that station are advised to take the 4,5, or 6 trains. People can also walk to 5 Av-53 St and take the E to 42 Street and transfer to the N or Q, or take the M and transfer to the N or Q at 34 St-Herald Square.
Manhattan-bound R trains are running on the F line between 36 Street in Queens and W4 Street R service runs express to 59 St-4 Avenue in Brooklyn, then local to Bay Ridge-95 Street.
Commuters making their way from Manhattan to Brooklyn R stations are advised to take the N for stations between Court Street and 53 Street.
