The city must not want Williamsburg and Canarsie residents in Manhattan this weekend. Because, once again, the L will be closed for, roughly, the bagillionth (my editor says its spelled “bajillionth” but I disagree. See poll) time in recent memory.

All changes are from Saturday, March 3 at 12:01 am to Monday, March 5 at 5 am unless otherwise noted.

D: Coney Island-bound trains run on the N line from 36 Street to Stillwell Avenue.

L: No trains between Broadway Junction and Eighth Avenue. Take the shuttle.

How do you spell the number that means a million times more than kajillion?

Maybe it's that Williamsburg and Canarsie residents don't want people from Manhattan coming over this weekend.
