B61 Now Runs to "Ikea Terminal"
Change is coming. A reader sent us an email yesterday afternoon with the subject line "B61 Shilling for Ikea" to let us know that the B61 no longer says that it runs to Van Brunt Street. Our reader wrote:
Yesterday I noticed that the B61 now says "RED HOOK - IKEA TERMINAL" instead of VAN BRUNT ST. RED HOOK in the flashing side destination menus. I might feel better about the free advertising *if the ikea was actually open yet* but, well, you know. Is the city getting paid for this? Inquring minds want to know.Actually, we're pretty certain it's just the MTA being hyper-efficient and getting the name of the stop up there long before the store opens. If only other aspects of the operation could be so ahead of the curve.
