Under different circumstances, Kelly Tieger might have stayed in New York City forever.
She liked her job teaching at a school in Chelsea and the rent-stabilized apartment she and her husband shared in Bushwick, the Brooklyn neighborhood they found affordable enough to move to in 2012. The cherry on top: her 25-minute commute to Manhattan.
The stars had aligned. And then, in 2016, the L train shutdown was announced.
“We hadn’t thought about leaving, and then we heard about the L train,” Ms. Tieger said. “It sort of became this thing of, like, what kind of life do we want to live?”
She began looking for jobs somewhere she and her husband could afford with a commute she could tolerate. They ended up moving two and a half hours away — to Connecticut — this past August.
When the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said it would shut down the Canarsie Tunnel, which the L train travels through between Manhattan and Brooklyn, for repairs, many other L train riders asked the same question. Some responded by moving apartments and offices; all of them steeled themselves for longer commutes.
So when Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced a subway shutdown about-face on Thursday, the reaction of those who had already seen their lives upended was mixed, but visceral.
“It just felt, personally, like a punch in the gut,” said Brad Dulay, 33, who left Williamsburg for Hoboken, N.J., in October. “After we went through all that.”
[The L train shutdown plan was three years in the making. It unraveled in three weeks.]
While Mr. Dulay works from home, his wife works as a nurse on the Upper East Side. It was an easy commute from the apartment they owned, Mr. Dulay said. But without the L, it would have been much harder.
Under Mr. Cuomo’s new plan, service on the L line would run on a limited schedule on nights and weekends, when one of the tunnel’s tubes would be shut down. The transit authority said on Thursday that it would offset the impact by beefing up service on the G, M and 7 trains as it had previously planned, but it did not provide details.
But this past summer, the L train shutdown seemed certain, and so “it became a mad dash” for Mr. Dulay and his wife to relocate, he said. The couple put their apartment on the market, selling it for about ,000 less than they were asking, because they were determined to leave the neighborhood before the train stopped running.
They were not the only people to compromise. Landlords in Williamsburg were giving concessions to renters, offering them reduced rates or a free month’s rent, according to Andrew Barrocas, the chief executive of MNS, a real estate firm.
With the shutdown averted, Mr. Barrocas said, some of the landlords now regret it.
“They wish they wouldn’t have given the concessions,” he said. “But my response was, you know, ‘If you buy life insurance and you don’t die, are you upset about it?’”
Overall, parts of the rapidly gentrifying neighborhoods along the L line became somewhat more affordable for renters before the reversal on Thursday, said Grant Long, an economist at StreetEasy, the New York City real estate site.
Rents in north Brooklyn have fallen 1.5 percent since the shutdown was first announced, Mr. Long said, while rents in the rest of the borough rose by 3.3 percent.
In general, the supply of apartment rentals in north Brooklyn was also outpacing demand, Mr. Long said. In Bushwick, available apartment listings more than doubled from October 2017 to October 2018, according to data from StreetEasy. In Williamsburg, the supply of apartments was near record highs.
Mr. Long predicted rents would rise sharply in the near future as landlords looked to recover some of their lost revenue.
Anyone who decided to suffer through the shutdown and signed a lease last week, he said, should be feeling pretty lucky.
That was of little comfort to the people who they replaced, like Fay El Klahi, 32, who left her Brooklyn apartment for Manhattan just two weeks ago. She and her fiancé didn’t want to leave Williamsburg but felt the shutdown gave them little choice.
While she wanted to move back to Brooklyn, it was out of the question. “That would cost us another fortune to get back,” she said. “And we’d have to break our lease.”
[The L train isn’t shutting down after all. What exactly does that mean?]
The changing fate of the L train has also affected those who lacked the financial means to move.
“I am perplexed, excited and angry, all at the same time,” said James Dier, who planned to remain in the Williamsburg apartment he has lived in since 2012. “But I really do hope for the best.”
Many people like Mr. Dier, who works evenings and weekends at a theater in Midtown Manhattan, said some subway service was better than no subway service. But the timing of Mr. Cuomo’s announcement and lack of specifics surrounding it left them frustrated.
Delilah Martinez, who commutes from Canarsie to her job at a waxing salon in Manhattan, was aggravated by the idea of night and weekend work stretching on. She said that in the past, when the L train has not run properly on the weekends, she has spent taking a car service to get to work on time.
“I would rather they do it quickly and just get it over with,” she said.
Roch Kiki, 34, a deliveryman who lives in East New York and works in Manhattan, said he was not looking forward to the hassles of night and weekend travel for an extended amount of time.
“It will not be easy,” said Mr. Kiki, who immigrated in 2016 from Benin. “But I am not able to move. I don’t have the money. What choice do I have?”B:
