[Ed. – The city is experiencing a glass shortage.]
Villainous vandals have smashed so many windows on No. 7 trains over the last six months that the MTA may be forced to cut service on the line due to a glass shortage, said MTA sources with knowledge of the matter.
A video shared online Wednesday night shows a train at the Vernon Blvd.-Jackson Ave. station with its windows smashed up.
Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials said crews found three cars with shattered glass around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. A total of 39 windows were smashed on the train, said a transit source.
They found another cracked window on a conductor’s cab on the No. 7 line’s Main St. terminal in Flushing, Queens just after 8 p.m. that day.
The incidents were just the latest in months-long smashing spree that’s resulted in no arrests.
