Should both the Jay St/Lawerence St and Bleecker/Bway-Lafayette Stations be renamed?

Simple question guys. Should both the Jay St/Lawerence St and Bleecker/Bway-Lafayette Stations be renamed? As most of you are aware, those 2 stations are being renovated & having bulit a new subway transfer connection added.

IMO, both of them should be renamed to the following.

 

Houston St/Bway station (:)(D)(F)(M)(6)

 

Jay St & Lawerence Transit Center. (A)(C)(F)(R) since Brooklyn Borough Hall is 2 blocks away. Plus the former (NYCT)

headquarters is located there.

 

The (MTA) is already planning to rename the Bway-Nassau station on the (A)(C) lines into the Fulton Transit Center so why not these 2 stations?

 

What you guys think?

Jay Street–Borough Hall is—in fact—Lawrence Street on the R160 trains. Have you been on an (F) rerouted to Euclid Avenue?

All they're doing at Bway-Lafayette is extending the uptown platform backwards so it can connect to the (:)(D)(F)(M)...noo need to change the name

 

And CenSin is right...if you would catch a R160 (F) to Euclid it announces Jay St-Boro Hall but on the FINDs it says Lawrence St...I think it should be changed to Jay St-Metrotech since Metrotech Ctr is literally right upstairs from the train station...Boro Hall is like 3 blocks away

That is an error in the FIND. The signs with Jay St-Metrotech are already up at street level on some entrances, and yes Borough Hall and Lawrence will be dropped. No word yet on whether any change will take place with Bway-Laff or Bleeker.

I think renaming Jay-Lawerence stations to Jay St.-Metrotech is a good idea.:tup:

The names of the stations should remain as is

 

Latter statement beats former statement. Well said, Matt.

They're already naming Jay St to Jay St - MetroTech so there's nothing worth discussing there.

 

As for Bleecker/ Broadway-Lafayette, they don't have to have the same name considering they run perpendicular to each other. Most transfers between two separate lines in Manhattan aren't named after one station since they run on perpendicular lines (ex - 51st St. (6)/Lexington Ave. (E)(M), 6th Ave. (L)/14th St. (1)(2)(3)(F)(M), 42nd St. (:)(D)(F)(M)/5th Ave. (7), etc.).

Speaking of which, new column signs are up that read "Jay Street-MetroTech". MetroTech is obscured by a piece of tape on the northbound platforms, while it's out in plain view on the southbound platforms.

Why must you add the name transit center to everything?

 

Broadway/Bleeker should stay as is. Jay St should be "Jay St - Metrotech". That's it.

Agreed! I don't get how it is a Transit Center. Id call it Transit Center if it were more routes and other connection including buses. Similar to White Plains Transit Center. MNR <> Bee-Line/TZXpress/I-Bus, etc.

Agreed. By the standards of other transit systems, NYC has many stations that could be considered "Transit Centers" in terms of the frequency and number of the bus routes available.

 

Some of the smaller ones that could probably fit the definition of "Transit Center" are:

Norwood-205th Street (D)

Kings Highway (:)/(Q)

Crown Heights-Uica Avenue (3)/(4)

Fordham Metro-North station

Simpson Street (2)(5)

Parkchester-East 177th Street (6)/<6>

Westchester Square-East Tremont Avenue (6)/<6>

Gun Hill Road (2)/(5)

All of the stations on 125th Street in Manhattan

Rockaway Blvd (A)

 

and of course the big ones like Broadway Junction, Coney Island, etc.
