NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Smith-Ninth streets subway station in Brooklyn reopened Friday morning after a two-year rehabilitation project.
It is the world’s tallest elevated stop and has been renovated from top-to-bottom at a cost of $32 million.
“I don’t have to walk 10 blocks, I only have to walk one block,” one rider said.
“It’s so convenient now,” another rider said. “Now I don’t have to wait 15, 20 minutes for the bus when I can already be on the train. I’m so happy.”
