G Train Extended To Park Slope!

I've always wondered why in the hell the G train stops at Smith & 9th. There's clearly track laid out (F train) to keep going. Plus, according to old maps, at one point the G did in fact go through Park Slope.

Well now it looks like I won't have an excuse to not attend BBQs and shows in Park Slope anymore because the G train is getting 5 new stops added to the route starting July 5th. The last stop will be south of Prospect Park at Church Street.

Park Slope and Prospect Park I still consider uncharted territory. Sure I've been to both but not nearly as much as I probably should have. The reason being, it's a huge pain in the ass to get there from Williamsburg without a car. But now it'll only be about 30 minutes on the G, which is pretty awesome! As an outdoorsman I'm really excited to be able to get to the park without any headaches.

The only problem here is that this may only be a temporary re-route. At some point the MTA might go back to ending the G at Smith & 9th, which sucks. However, they haven't officially said whether it would be permanent or temporary. Let's start a campaign to make sure the change sticks.
