The shiny NTT is in stark contrast with the dimly lit station. MTA should repaint their trains.

We have a new head of Capital Construction

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/19/n...lverstein.html
Quote:
A real estate executive who played a prominent role in rebuilding the World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan will join the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to oversee its large infrastructure projects, officials said on Wednesday.
The executive, Janno Lieber, is leaving Silverstein Properties, a real estate firm, for a new role as chief development officer at the authority, which runs New York City’s subways, buses and commuter railroads. Starting in May, Mr. Lieber will manage the agency’s capital projects and real estate assets, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said

Has anyone ever been on one of those old vintage trains? I never have but I heard that they left the old advertisements up from back in their day. I would love to go on just for that reason.
