today’s humorous New York City Transit service alert

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

This happens every now and then – something funny will pop up in the service alert. Today we are presented with a new subway station name that combines the best of two stations. You have Jamaica-Van Wyck. And you have Briarwood/Van Wyck Blvd. Put them together and you get Jamaica-Van Wyck Boulevard (see the image below).
