On the news this evening they made a big deal about weekend service on the Flushing line being suspended between Queensboro Plaza and Times Square including interviews with irate passengers. What is the big deal about this? Inbound to Manhattan you can transfer at 74th St/Roosevelt Ave. for the E/F trains. And at Q-Plaza you can transfer across the platform to the N train. All of them go to midtown Manhattan. Yes, I would expect some overcrowding, but it's not as if you can't go between Queens and Manhattan, so what's with all the riders complaining? Or is there some problem with this that I'm not aware of?
