NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — More than five months after Superstorm Sandy, service to South Ferry has resumed.
No. 1 subway trains began running to and from the old South Ferry station Thursday morning. The newer South Ferry Terminal was heavily damaged in the Oct. 29 storm and extensive repairs are still needed.
Sandy’s storm surge sent some 15 million gallons of salt water into the station. It destroyed all electrical and mechanical systems and blew out a critical connection for commuters — the final stop on the No. 1 train at the southern tip of Manhattan.
