Remember when the 34th Street-Hudson Yards station first opened and it was all shiny and new and clean? Yup, that sure was nice for three days!
If you've used the station at all recently you have no doubt noticed the very leaky ceilings, standing water on the walkways and the constantly out of commission escalators (which are also due in part to leaks.) The bathrooms have also had to close due to water leaks.
The station opened in September to the tune of $2.4 billion dollars, and was the first new subway station to open in over 25 years. The MTA just announced they will be paying a contractor $3 million to do repairs on the station which will take eight to twelve weeks to complete.
Hopefully, they'll be able to keep it functional for a a few weeks after that.
