Is the L Train Fucked?

I used to ask myself one question every day: "Is the L train fucked?"

And then one day I took matters into my own hands and I created this single serving site to let New Yorker's know if the L line was running. It uses the MTA's API to provide info in real-time. When it came out it hit a nerve amongst New York commuters and people went pretty nuts for it. Four years later it still has a consistent following and now is complimented by an iOS app.
