LIRR Derailment Under the East River

June 17, 2013

Thank goodness I wasn’t involved in this accident or the resulting train delays. ¬†According to the news reports the incident happened at 5:51 PM as was in downtown Flushing at that time. The news reported that Penn Station was jammed as Long Island commuters had to find another way home. ¬†There were three alternatives:

  • Take the #7 to 61st Street Woodside and get the LIRR there
  • Take the E train to Jamaica and get the LIRR there
  • Take the Subway to Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn to pick up the LIRR
