We are expectant for divine blessing on our congregation this weekend at First! Hope you can be a part.
Here’s a look ahead to what’s on the docket.
Weekend Subway Advisory
There will be no 1 train service this weekend. The uptown 2 and 3 will run local from Chambers Street to 96th Street, but the downtown 2 and 3 will not stop at 79th Street.
For those coming from midtown, downtown, Brooklyn, or Queens: take or transfer to the uptown 2 or 3 train.
For those coming from uptown or the Bronx: take either the downtown A to 59th Street/Columbus Circle or the downtown 2 or 3 train to 72nd Street, then transfer to an uptown 2 or 3.
