The aftermath of the storm

The storm that has hit Brooklyn, New York and the rest of New York City
and the region has subsided. On my way to classes I decided to ride the
B train headed towards Manhattan from the Brighton Beach section of
Brooklyn. The snow is still bright white the day after. However the
conditions have made it slippery and people’s feet are wet. Of course
if you aren’t wearing boots, just somehow and someway, your feet are
bound to become wet from all that slush formed by the melted snow
puddles in the sidewalk.

Transportation in New York City has
returned to normal. The subways and buses, (NYCT, Bus Comp, and Long
Island Bus) were running on or close to schedule. Some snowplows and
garbage trucks were still removing and setting aside some snow that had
struck the streets a day earlier.

Here are some photos.





I am entering the subway station in Brighton Beach and boarding the B train using R68 cars. This is along the Brighton Line.





Next up is the boarding of the train.




Soon
enough, the B train leaves for Manhattan. I decided to snapshot some
photographs along the elevated section. The tracks are still covered in
snow.




Here comes Sheepshead Bay.




And we are leaving that neighborhood, only sticking there for about 20 seconds. Another Brighton bound B train passes us by.



The covered tracks at Cortelyou Road.
That is all for the B train.

Later
in the day, I would take the F train bound to Coney Island coming from
Manhattan. Snow is everywhere still. I am traveling along the Culver
Line, passing the neighborhoods of Borough Park, Midwood, Gravesand,
and Coney Island.







Now just waiting for the bus after leaving the F train at Neptune Avenue.

Big credit to your knowledge….No one knows that’s always been the Culver Line. I didn’t even have to swipe my Metrocard for this ride…Nice.
