The oft-delayed opening of the new South Ferry terminal on the 1 has been postponed again. After a construction problem rendered the station non-ADA compliant, it seemed as though the station would open at the end of February. Now that February has come and gone, the station remains in MTA construction limbo.
Last week, amNew York reported that the station would be completed in May and open before then. I checked in with the MTA, and Deputy Press Secretary Aaron Donovan told me that the station will be completed in April. Right now, the crews are fixing the ADA issue while continuing work on aspects of the station — the air-tempering system and canopy — that won’t be completed until after the ribbon-cutting. When that will be though is anyone’s guess as the MTA has, in the words of Donovan, “not yet determined the opening date for the new station.”
