New York subway lines up and running — partially
NEW YORK New York’s massive subway system is back up and running — at least partially — though the commute is still plagued by delays, this time at traffic checkpoints.
Trains started rolling about 6 a.m. today. MTA officials say 14 of the city’s 23 subway lines will have at least some service.
As he waited at the 59th Street station, Otiliano Caraballo, a 57-year-old caterer at New York University, said he’s glad to be going back to work. He says his routine at home was: “Eat, sleep, watch TV. Eat, sleep, watch TV.”
The commuting problem today is that police checkpoints set up to make sure three occupants are in cars traveling into Manhattan seemed to be causing delays.
Local TV broadcasts showed traffic jams building.
