No. 7 train service was suspended in both directions between Queens and Manhattan for more than two hours Monday due to a smoke condition, the MTA said.
The incident initially halted service between the Times Square and Queensboro Plaza stations around 11:30 a.m. The suspensions on both the express and local lines continued until about 2 p.m., with no trains between Hunters Point Avenue and the last stop in Manhattan. Main Street-bound 7 express train service did resume for almost another hour.
The cause of the smoke, which was located near First Avenue, is under investigation, according to an MTA spokesman.
