New Information and Renderings for the Enhanced Station Initiative

Recommended Posts

In the various board meetings today, was some new information and new renderings for the 31 station Enhanced Station Initiative, the 31 station renovation plan unveiled by Governor Cuomo earlier this year.

 

Prospect Av, 53rd Street and Bay Ridge Av constitute "Package 1".

 

Screenshots are below:

"53rd Street" and (R) are no longer backlit. I still feel that some sort of standalone green lamp is required somewhere and that a green strip on the top of the neighborhood map isn't enough.

Strip maps near the stairs? How could that possibly impede traffic? :rolleyes: /s

I hope that they will decide to remove the awful 70s-era tiles and restore the originals.

There are better things to do with funding than use it to redesign a station to look like a Porcelanosa showroom.  If Cuomo had any idea what he was doing, he would know that.
