At 7am this morning, there were lots of police at the Bay Ridge Avenue R station. Some poor soul was run over by the R train today. That's why there were big delays in Bay Ridge today. I was told this morning by transit employees at the station, and I overheard an NYPD detective saying that they "had to get him out of there"
Update: a transit employee told me that the man killed was walking on the train tracks. I will speculate that this may have been a homeless man going to or from a small emcampment that has always been there under or near the Bay Ridge Towers.
