Group proposes changing the NYC Subway “N” Line to the Ñ Line

Group proposes changing the NYC Subway “N” Line to the Ñ Line

To honor the contribution of the Latino community in New York City, a group of New Yorkers are proposing that the N Line be changed to the Ñ (Enie) Line from September 15 – October 15, 2011 for Hispanic Heritage Month.
They’ve even posted signs on various subway platforms that mimic official MTA New York City Transit signs asking NYC Straphangers to show their support by visiting the organizations website and using the Twitter hashtag #lineaenie. The organizations Facbeook page has 150 likes.
Why the N? The organization’s website says. “There are fewer things more Hispanic than the letter Ñ. It’s crucial for communication, and something that all Spanish-speaking Latinos share, regardless of country of origin. No wonder the word español has an ñ!”
The change would strictly be limited to the line name and actual service would not be affected in anyway, according to the organization.
We reached out to the MTA for comment and they are looking into the matter, but couldn’t confirm if the organization has already reached out to them.

WEIGH IN:
Should the MTA change the name of the line for Hispanic Heritage Month?
