    You might wanna avoid (or visit, depending on your music preference) the general area of Central Park tomorrow as there's a free concert in the works. The Black Eyed Peas and Taylor Swift are playing, and a bunch of other people are apparently lined up as well.

    The concert is free and will take place on the Great Lawn starting at 6:30pm, but gates will open at 3pm which will undoubtedly make a mess of things nearby).

    The MTA is extending the southbound B train until 11:22pm. Southbound D trains will be rerouted to run on the local track to serve stations along Central Park West as well.

    The MTA is also advising customers heading to Penn Station / Port Authority or PATH to use the B and D at 86th street, 72nd Street to 59th Street and transfer to the 1 or to 7th Avenue and transfer to the E.

    The M1, M3, M4, M10 M66, M72 and M79 buses will also be affected by concert crowds.

    Good heads up.
    The Robin Hood organization by the way is really a very good cause- hopefully this concert raises a lot of money for them.
