Williamsburg residents interested in venturing to Manhattan this weekend will be disappointed to learn that they’re basically trapped inside their trendy-people utopia for the foreseeable future. Starting at 11:45 p.m. Friday, there will be no L train service between 8th Avenue and Lorimer Street while the MTA performs maintenance through early Monday morning, effectively trapping all of the hipsters in one borough for the next five weekends. Is the L train fucked? Yes, forever.
