South Ferry Term Is Open! (56k Warning)

Recommended Posts

Well, not right now, because of the water main break. But it looks beautiful. I met CurAke, Majinvegeta, and a few other railfans that I didn't get their handles. But thank you everyone I met for making my experience at the new station great. Here we go!

 

First, photos of the old station, 2 hours before.

But enough of that. Outside:

Great pics! I got there after class today around 4:15 and I just missed the train which went BIE. Service was delayed for about 20 min so I got a good look around and you can see the model board from out side the tower. Its a very nice station, but very bland compared to old South Ferry.

I agree, it is bland, but it does look good. Thanks!

Thanks! Definitely take a look, it looks great.

 

Damn, I've never been to the old one, Nice shots!

 

Thanks. I'm sorry to hear that, you really missed a lot. Search youtube, I have a few videos as do other railfans.

 

Great pictures. I'm going there after work to check this new station out and I can't wait to see it!

 

Thanks. Definitely go.

 

Nice shots, I might head later or tomo. Were there lots of people?

 

Thanks. No, not as many as I expected, but we had a good railfanning crowd.

Aww...I'm sorry. Don't give up, you have no choice but to go to the new station now anyway. Thanks!

 

Very nice catches! I'm eager to see it myself next month! :)

 

Thanks! Like I've said, definitely go.

Very nice pix and vids... I was there around 4:00-5:00... Quiet station, luckily there was a musician playing music... I took pix of the transfer area... I will do outside and inside this spring... I still saw some of the Old Ferry posters up on the R-62's...

 

You were?

I was by the booth at the main entry at 4:26

Those are some great vids and pics there. It was awesome meeting you, we should fan one day !

 

I think the best part was when the contractor was trying to get the (1) Train poster, but then got trapped in the car and the train left with him in it! Everyone in the station, even the transit personnel was cracking up, that was the connection with transit officials and railfans!

Thanks. Go visit. That's all I have to say.

Thanks. They'll be as surprised as the rest of the folks going there for the first time.

Thanks. As soon as the station opened, they got a musician AND a guy handing out religious pamphlets. They know how to be everywhere.

I will to, but I'm glad this finally opened.

Thanks. We'll meet again someday. And I think that was definitely the funniest part of the trip. The fact that everyone was laughing made it even funnier.

Did you see a guy with an iPhone and taking pix? I am that guy with lenghty hair, chubby like a rail-fan with a tan-ish jacket... I porbably saw you but I was walking pretty fast, :(...

 

Not really. I used a sliding phone and was on the mezzanine of all 3 exits. I was taking pictures of the architecture and the tracks. I'm an Asian kid with a black jacket and black jeans. Kind of short. Have glasses. That's about it. I was outside also.
