Always Know Your Options When There is A Train Delay

August 22, 2014

This morning I was on the #7 express, but as we approached the 61st Street station the conductor announce that since the train ahead of us had door problems this train will be taken out of service.  The platform was mobbed waiting to get the #7 local to Manhattan.  I did some quick thinking and took the #7 back to 74th Street and changed for the E train to get to the 8th Avenue side of Penn Station.  My delay was minimal.  So always thank of alternatives when confronted by a delay.  Many times there is no alternative, but this time there was.
