Smith 9 Street Reopening Soon

Recommended Posts

The world’s highest subway station is set to re-open again after a two-year rehabilitation project that brought a ground up renewal to the 79-year old facility that serves as the gateway to Red Hook.  F and G trains will begin making regular stops at the station the week of April 22.

The rehabilitation began in May 2011, in conjunction with the rebuilding of the Culver Viaduct.  The station reconstruction work included a new and expanded street-level control house, a new architectural metal panel escalator enclosure and rehabilitated stairs and platforms.  The project also called for the installation of new lighting, state-of-the-art public address and CCTV systems, as well as a 14-foot-tall mosaic, installed as part of the MTA Arts for Transit.

“This has been a long and complicated project but we are grateful for the community’s patience while we performed this necessary work.  This station will be 80 years old this summer and this rehabilitation will see it reach that milestone with a much improved appearance and functionality,” said Thomas F. Prendergast, President of MTA New York City Transit and Interim Executive Director of the MTA.

Construction on some finishes and elements that do not affect passenger functionality will be ongoing, but the station is being opened to better serve our customers.

I'm looking forward to see what the station looks like. All I've seen is the platforms.

Wow... Clean platforms for a change... I don't see that station holding up long though... You'd think they'd use more quality materials for outdoor stations, esp. considering the cost for these renovations...  <_<

I rode past Smith-9 Sts on the (G) earlier. Words cannot describe how decent that station looks.

This maybe my first time ever pulling my foot on the station. I have never been in the station, except on a train lol. Gotta take a look myself as well.
