F Train Subway Delays This Morning At Roosevelt Island Subway Station Due To Smoke Conditions At Manhattan Station

Roosevelt Island Commuters Figuring Out How To Get To Work

Another day of problems with the morning's Roosevelt Island F Train subway commute. No trains to Manhattan or Queens due to a smoke condition at a Manhattan Station. According to RIOC:
Please be advised that due to a smoke condition at a Manhattan station, service has been temporarily suspended in both directions.

RIOC has added additional Red Bus Service to Manhattan and the Q102 Bus is running on schedule.


Roosevelt Island Operating Corp Advisories Group
Roosevelt Island commuters were packed together in groups trying to figure out how to get to work, school or elsewhere this morning near the Rivewalk Bus Stop

and the subway station

Some took the Red Bus to Manhattan

and others shared a cab.

At about 9:20 an announcement was made that F train service had returned to Queens and a little while after that Manhattan F Train service resumed.

Upon hearing the announcement, Roosevelt Island commuters stoically made their way through the Riverwalk Commons

to the F Train Subway Station and resumed their commute.

RIOC issued the following advisory at 9:45 AM:
Please be advised the F train is back in service in both directions.
Must be an interesting day for Mr. Steve Chironis to start his position as Interim President of RIOC.

My family and I were stuck in an F train btwn the Rock and Bryant Park stations for about 45 minutes. The conductor said there was a broken down train in the Broadway/Lafayette station.
