Find out what the F is going on!

This week on Brooklyn Paper Radio, Gersh and Vince got to the bottom of the latest civil war between the North and South — of Brooklyn — explaining with pinpoint accuracy the battle for the soul of the F train, which the Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced will soon begin skipping stops in Downtown Brooklyn to speed up rides for those getting on down South.

Joining the boys on the air was Councilman Brad Lander (D–Park Slope) — he of the North — who used some strong words to describe the debacle he says would leave thousands of his constituents waiting in the lurch while shaving just five minutes off the commutes of those living in Brooklyn’s Dixie.

“This is about my constituents getting effed,” Lander said live on podcast. “More than half of regular F train commuters will be hurt by this.”

All in all, it’s a great listen, and can be found, as always, on BrooklynPaper.com, on iTunes at, on Mixlr, and of course, on Stitcher.

Brooklyn Paper radio is recorded and podcast live every Thursday at 4:45 pm.
