Vandals smashed dozens of train windows along a subway line that connects Manhattan and Queens, disrupting the commutes for tens of thousands of passengers on Wednesday.
The vandalism happened Tuesday around 6:50 p.m. on the W line, which remained shut Wednesday afternoon, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which runs the subway. The D, N, Q and R lines were also delayed, but service along those lines has since been restored.
The authority said 78 windows were broken across 36 trains. By 11 a.m., crews had fixed 25 of the trains. Richard Davey, the president of New York City Transit, said during a news conference on Wednesday that the cost of the damage has been assessed at “tens of thousands if not more dollars.”
The police are investigating the incident.
