The planned extension of the 7 train to the far West Side of Manhattan has been in the works for years now—and, as per usual with MTA projects, has encountered its share of delays—but now, it looks like the new station at 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue is finally coming together. Revenue service to the stop is expected to begin next summer, barring any further delays (hey, you never know). We're not going to lie—given TONY's location on Tenth Avenue, we're pretty excited for this particular stop to come to fruition.


The MTA released photos of the ongoing construction yesterday—check out a slide show above, which shows tracks being laid, as well as platforms and escalators installed in the station.
