Looks like enough money for multiple utilitarian non politicised stations. And it's been leaking all along. I wonder how much of the grandeur is due to the profile of the development. With the name at least their not pretending to fool anybody. Honestly the low ridership is the most annoying thing. If this happened in a less desirable or promising neighborhood people would be decrying it much more vocally.

For projects like this, there's a mandated percentage that must be given to art. And it really doesn't look any more elaborate than any other new subway station anywhere else in the world. You don't want it to be looking like some of the truly dismal stations from the Dual Contracts era, do you? Exposed I-Beams are no longer even allowed, if possible. Look at Seattle, Tokyo, London, and Paris (Moscow doesn't count). All of these cities have new stations either just opened or under construction, all of which are at least as elaborate as this. New York is a world-class city that needs and deserves appropriate infrastructure. Look at some of the older stations in NYC that have been rehabbed. They look quite nice as well.

The fact that this station is very bright is at least partly due to being new, and partly due to new guidelines for visibility.

If all of the walls were covered with mosaics, then I would agree with you that it was opulent. However, this station is basically what a typical modern subway station looks like. In fact, I've heard people complaining about it being very plain and banal (it is compared to some of the stuff elsewhere-especially in Moscow).

Ubisoft touts that there will be an underground expansion for Tom Clancy's The Division. This should be an interesting topic for each and every NYC subway fan.

Will the subway system featured in The Divisional New York be an accurate recreation?

Shows that we can't get things done right in this city. The station is brand new and it's already showing signs of age, stains on the walls, on the floors, leaks here and there. Shody work at its finest. Just check out the "new" transfer/connection for Broadway Lafayette station. If you didn't know any better, you'd think it was built 100 years ago.

It's not the art, it's how much open room there is for no good reason. This is a mined station and yet it's so much larger than the old cut and cover stations for no good reason. Fulton Street and the new PATH station are similar stations that have huge open areas for no good reason. The new Second Avenue Subway stations aren't quite as bad, but still much more expensive than they need to be. Screw everything look nice, just make things work.

Allow me to point you to Washington, Moscow, London, and Stockholm. Not to mention the stations on Archer Ave and 63rd Street.


First of all, there's the arch shape up-top, which is for stability and strength. This way, they can have a single, massive, cavern, which is stronger and easier to build.


Why do they need so much floor space? To anticipate future growth of traffic and enable safe evacuation. Also, having open space like this is proven to attract riders and reduce crime, due to the various subconscious impressions created in the mind.

Studies have demonstrated all of this, and stations as seen on the Dual Contracts lines have been basically out-of-date since the 1960s. They are not up to code, with unsafe ceilings and the like.

Are you looking for photos of historic rolling stock i.e.coches? or just looking for information on the rolling stock?

The coaches you see in the photo above your post are not historic. They are current rolling stock.

I wonder if I as a small child ever rode in one of these cars on the Third AV EL???? The undated photos are probably from circa 1954-55.
