NEW YORK CITY — New Yorkers hoping to celebrate during Sunday's NYC Pride March will have a little bit of trouble getting to Christopher Street, where the parade ends.

Because of construction, the 1 train will not run south of 14th Street. The 2 and 3 trains will be running local between 34th Street and Chambers Street, meaning they'll likely be crowded for Pride-goers.

The line is one of 10 lines that will be affected by service changes this weekend, along with the 4, 5, A, D, E, F, J, M and Q trains, according to MTA officials

Here's what's coming this weekend:
