A body was discovered on the southbound L Train tracks Tuesday morning at the 1st Avenue station, officials say.
According to the FDNY, the body was discovered at 7:15 a.m. It is not clear if the unidentified victim was hit by a train.
L Train service has since been restored with residual delays, according to the MTA, though many riders faced transit problems during the Tuesday morning rush hour commute.
The East River Ferry provided some relief to Williamsburg commuters, though their official Twitter account reported that boats are maxing out in the area.
