Mayor Bloomberg and Peter Kalikow, president of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, celebrated the resumption of full subway service over the Manhattan Bridge on Fri. Feb. 20 with a D train ride from Pacific St. station in Brooklyn to the Grand St. station in Manhattan.
The Grand St. station, an important stop in Chinatown, was closed nearly three years ago to accommodate the bridge reconstruction. It reopened on Sun. Feb 22 for B and D train service over the Manhattan Bridge. The N train resumed using the bridge and will no longer go to Lower Manhattan except for midnight to 5 a.m. W trains will go Downtown on weekdays, making all stops to Whitehall St. There will be added R train service to and from Manhattan during rush hours.
