Since May, more than 400 windows have been smashed on subway cars, including hundreds on 7 trains alone.

The MTA says the damage has costed them more than $300,000.

So many windows have been broken that the MTA is running out of replacements.

They say it will soon result in more time between trains - translating to longer waits on subway platforms and more crowded subway trains, two things MTA is actively trying to avoid during the pandemic.

The MTA is offering a $10,000 reward in the case.
