Is there nowhere in millennial-friendly Brooklyn that a person can turn to for transportation anymore? It would seem not, as even when we were just getting used to the M train functioning regularly and venturing into the city as a small consolation to the inevitable lack of L train, it goes and decides to leave us in 2017.
“I actually just fucking moved off the M train on Central Avenue to avoid any issues with the L, and now this happens. I honestly feel like the MTA is watching my every move to see just how much of a living hell they can make my life,” bemoaned Janet Effed, a 23-year-old interning at Nylon with the hope of getting a menial 30k a year salary if she gets hired on as an editor.
Other residents of Bushwick and its offshoot, Ridgewood, are also panicking. “I think it might be time to move to Manhattan, to be honest. And just when Brooklyn was finally offering more shitty office jobs for me to take the train to,” noted Sarah Sfortunata, a 22-year-old who is about to graduate from Pratt. While a representative from the MTA could not be reached for comment, it’s fairly clear that they have it in for people who live in North Brooklyn–and why wouldn’t they?
