Work is most definitely coming along… check out an artist’s rendering of the future 96th Street 1/2/3 station (top) next to the current shape of the station (bottom). There is definitely a resemblance, implying that maybe the MTA wasn’t too far off when they claimed the station’s renovations would be finished 20 months early (with a budget of $54 million, $26 million less than the original budget, according to Curbed). The construction began in August 2007 on the station (one of the oldest in the system), and when completed, the station will have the new headhouse seen above, complete with stairway and escalator entrances leading directly to the platform and new office and control space. Want to know more about the 96th Street Station renovations? The MTA gave a detailed and thorough presentation to the Community Board 7, with slides showing past, present, and future work; the presentation can be seen here.
