Farewell To The W Line Adventure - Saturday, May 30th

Spring is here and we’re gearing up for another Big Adventure. Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 30th. That’s when we will bid a fond farewell to the New York Subway “W” Line.

Soon, this nefarious Economic Down Turn and the MTA Budget Cuts will wipe out this entire route for good (along with the Z line). Since we moved to NYC, the W line has hauled us from sundry spots from downtown Manhattan to the edge of Astoria. Over the course of the afternoon and evening, we’ll ride the rails and make several fun and irreplaceable stops to pay tribute to the friendly giant W symbol. Plus, you’ll enjoy the last low fares before the insane jump in cost on June 1st.

We plan to start the day around 1:00 PM or so and work our way from Battery Park at Whitehall Station downtown and probably end at Ditmars Station in Astoria. We’ll make a few quality stops right off the line which will likely include an Afternoon Air Hockey Tournament, some one-of-a-kind food stops, definitely a visit to the Astoria Bohemian Beer Garden (oh yeah) and much more.

As with all Brooke and Phil Adventures, we promise that the day will be unique, affordable and distinctly NYC. Detailed Information forthcoming in the next two weeks, but we wanted to get it on your radar.

We hope that you’ll join us for one last trip down the W Line before it fades away for good…
