Snow Blankets Brooklyn Heights; Subway and Bus Service Changes

Cadman Plaza West has accumulated an inch or two of snow now. It's been a while since a plow went by.

The Brooklyn Bridge and BQE are in better shape because of the volume of (slowly driving) cars.

Henry Street and the side streets in Brooklyn Heights are covered in snow. Don't drive if you don't have to!

According to the MTA, NYC Transit has begun to store trains underground which will impact scheduled express service in some areas (many express trains are running local). All planned service changes on the NYC subway have been canceled through mid-day.

Buses, especially those scheduled to run during the late and overnight hours have been outfitted with chains; salt trucks have been filled and equipped with plows to help keep bus stops clear of snow and ice. Service may be temporarily suspended or curtailed to avoid stuck trains and buses. Check here before you travel for the latest updates.

UPDATE Wednesday 9:40 a.m.:
Most subways are on time except for the uptown 2 and 5 trains, experiencing signal problems at the Freeman Street Station. Most buses are on time.

Many service changes at the LIRR -- check here for updates.

Access-A-Ride service is canceled for Wednesday, except for trips of medical necessity (e.g., dialysis, radiation treatment or chemotherapy). If you need to travel to an appointment of this nature, please call Access-A-Ride Reservations at 877-337-2017, and press 2 for Reservations.

A snowplow is coming up Cadman Plaza now -- should reach the Park in about 2 min.
