Any plans for the old South Ferry station? Keep it like the City Hall station?

Old South Ferry is not nearly as iconic as City Hall is. Once they finish rebuilding New South Ferry, they will shut down the old loop platform again, and that will be that.

As I know, the inner loop is used by trains in South Ferry Station.

Yes, the tracks will still be used for non-revenue trains, but the platform will remain closed.

And probably forever at that, unless gosh forbid there's another storm. Hopefully though, the new South Ferry will be equipped with prevention systems to keep the water out of the station.
