The No. 7 train is to Roosevelt Avenue in Queens what the A train is to Harlem: the rhythm of the place.

Track Work Disrupts Service on No. 7 Train in Queens
Service on the No. 7 train was suspended from 12:01 a.m. on Saturday to 5 a.m. on Monday for 10 stops through western Queens, the first of five weekend shutdowns that transit officials said were necessary to modernize the signal system and reconfigure track switches. The service suspension stretched from the Flushing-Main Street station to the Woodside-61st Street station.
