The #7 Subway train in NYC (its the train has a stop to get people to the US Open as well as back to wherever they need to get, this is what I use to get there) caught on fire at around 4 this afternoon! All the 7 trains are basically closed down now! So anyone that used this way to get to the Open is basically stuck in Flushing now....hope everyones OK.

They'll probably have shuttle buses.

I took the number 7 train from Flushing to Manhatten at 8:00 PM.

That's the train "made famous" by Atlanta Braves relief pitcher John Rocker's racial remarks about the people who rode it during a playoff series his team had with the NY Mets a few years ago. BTW, there's also a station on the Long Island Railroad @ the site, going both out to Lawn Guyland (as Nooo Yawkaz say it) :p and to Manhattan.
