The Federal Reserve Bank of New York will publish a Liberty Street Economics blog post about New York City subway delays at 12:00 PM EDT on Wednesday, June 27.

In light of decreasing subway service quality in recent years, the post will be a timely examination of how the impact of subway delays varies by income. Titled “Why New York City Subway Delays Don’t Affect All Riders Equally,” the post will also explore the correlation between commute times and neighborhood incomes.
