Are the trains from Brooklyn to Penn Station 24 hours?

Hi there,

I will be visiting Brooklyn next week for a couple days . I was wondering if all the trains from Brooklyn to Penn Station are 24 hours a day. I have to catch a train back to Toronto at 7:15am and want to make sure I can make it to the station in time for the train. I don't know the exact location of where I'll be staying but I think it's near the Park Slope area.

I was also wondering if there are any good queer or feminist events happening next week? Or any good indie or punk shows? We'll be in town from Monday night to Thursday morning. Also any good vegetarian restaurants be appreciated.

Thanks so much!

Long Island City...

The trains run 24/7 usually every 10 minutes. Late night they run considerably slower, like every 30-40 minutes (I believe) but during rush hours they run every 5 minutes. You shouldn't have a problem getting it that time, if its a weekday it will be packed. To get to penn station from park slope give yourself at least 40 minutes. If its a weekend I'd do an hour (just in case). Becareful MTA usually does track work on the 100 year old system on the weekends and your train maybe local only. Maybe someone can help corroborate those times. As far as the gay scene- timeout has a huge gay events section and you can pick one up at any newstand. Chelsea is very gay friendly, you will most likely find something there.
