The “Brooklyn Local” is back!

The G train started running its full route from Kensington to Queens on Wednesday morning — ten days after the Metropolitan Transportation Authority pulled all trains off the rails in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy.

The crucial one-seat link between North and Brownstone Brooklyns returned after protests from commuters and politicians, who claimed restoration of the line was especially necessary with the L train still out of commission in Williamsburg and Bushwick, and the J line jam-packed with Manhattan-bound straphangers.

There are “considerable delays” on the G line today due to repair work on communications and signal equipment in the tunnel under the Newtown Creek, according to the transit agency’s website.

As I keep having to remind you, it's the "Crosstown Local", or, full name "Brooklyn-Queens Crosstown Local".
