The Rev. Msgr. John Maloney doesn’t live near the R subway line, but he can tell you when the train is coming.
Maloney, pastor of Saint Anselm Roman Catholic Church at 356 82nd St., said he feels the vibrations of the R train as it rumbles beneath Fourth Avenue, even though the rectory where he resides is more than a quarter of a block away from the avenue.
“I live on the third floor of the rectory. And I know when the train is coming,” Maloney told the Brooklyn Eagle.
