Coney Stillwell TermWith Opening Day finally upon us, it is now time for the weekend’s MTA service changes.

A number of fans have given me a few suggestions on how to improve my postings for this season, and I have listened to a few. The best suggestion was to list TO GAME or FROM GAME for each posting.

Due to this weekend having the Cyclones play BKLYN-SI-BKLYN, I will list the changes in order of date.

For all changes NORTH of Atlantic Ave on the D N & Q and NORTH of Jay Street on the F, check


F Train

TO GAME: Coney Island-bound platforms at Avenue I, Bay Parkway, Avenue N, Avenue P, Avenue U & Avenue X are closed for renovations. If you need one of these bypassed stops, take a Manhattan Bound F Train to Kings Highway or Neptune Avenue for Coney Island-bound service.

Consider using the B68 Bus or the Q Train

N Train

FROM GAME: Manhattan-bound platforms at 86th Street, Avenue U, Kings Highway, 20th Avenue, 18th Avenue,  New Utrecht Avenue & Fort Hamilton Parkway are closed for renovation. To access these stations, take the N to Bay Parkway or 8th Ave for Coney Island-bound service. For New Utrecht Av-62 St, take the D instead.

SOUTH FERRY STATION: The Main Exit directly out to Peter Minuit Plaza, which has an escalator is closed for renovations this season. Use the other nearby exits.

F Train

TO GAME: Some Coney Island-bound F trains skip Bergen Street, Carroll Street & Smith-9th Streets.

If you board at any of the skipped stops, simply will have to wait for a local F train.

TO GAME & FROM GAME: 1 TrainNo service 1 service between 137 St and 242 St If you use those stations, you will have to use the MTA Shuttle Buses.

As a reminder, you must be in one of the first 5 cars to exit at the old South Ferry Station. This station is NOT ADA-Accessible.

TO GAME & FROM GAME: 4 5 TrainThere is no 4 Service in Brooklyn this weekend due to Hurricane Sandy repairs. 5 Trains do not run in Brooklyn on weekends.

If you are coming from along the Nostrand Avenue Line or the Eastern Parkway Line, take the 2 or 3, respectability, to Atlantic Avenue for R service to Whitehall Street.

If you are coming from the north, 5 trains will not run south of Grand Central and 4 trains will not run south of Brooklyn Bridge. Try to switch to the 1, 2, 3, or R trains

D TrainFROM GAME: Coney Island Bound D Trains run on the N line from 36 St to Stillwell Avenue.

To access the skipped stops, you will need to backtrack.

SIR LogoTO GAME: Trains board at the Tottenville-bound platform from Jefferson Av to Clifton Stations.

Consider using Staten Island Railway’s Park & Rides instead of parking near the ballpark, as parking will be an issue.


The Staten Island Ferry operates every half hour on weekends.
