Riders of the N and W trains faced heavy delays this morning as a result of mechanical problems at the Lexington Avenue-59th Street station, according to the MTA.
Service was down between Astoria-Ditmars Blvd and 57 St-7 Ave in both directions from about 8:30am until 9:45 am.
Manhattan-bound R trains were also running on the F line from Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av to Lexingtoan Av-63 St. with delays.
The disruption came the morning after evening rush-hour service was down for about an hour after a man was critically injured at the Broadway station after being struck by a train.
