    • LocationNear a station in Central Queens where three (E) trains terminate late in the AM Rush Hour on weekdays (at 8:27, 9:02, 9:13 from WTC, arriving at my home station at 9:09, 9:44 and 9:56 respectively) and was the terminal for E and EE trains from its opening on December 31, 1936 to April 24, 1937. This station is also home to R160 or R46 layups during the evening and weekend hours.

    This was added as part of an amendment to the Capital Program.

    Also, 53rd Street will close as part of the ESI on March 27.

    163rd street needs it. Why did they close off the north part of the station anyway?

    What were the first four besides 53rd? Prospect, 53rd, Bay Ridge Ave, and? Amusing to see another shot at terrible, cheap patchwork on a beautiful original BMT station. Lifehack: tear off the 70s refrigerator tiles, clean up the original mosaics underneath, and tell the public you've restored history. Far more timeless and appealing than the weird, clinical look of the 'new' station Cuomo proposed.

     

    These are, as I said in this thread, nothing but a series of old ideas tried again: http://www.nyctransi...on-redesigns/.

     

    Additional notes to the thread: the continuous service sign has been done before (1990s Times Square renovation), the directory was first tried in the 60s, and standing benches were a 1970s/1980s thing (you can still see them at 82nd on the (7) I believe).

    It was just three. (Prospect, 53rd and Bay Ridge Av)

    Now that’s one less stop to slow down the (N) when it randomly switches to the local track.
