Subway riders, rejoice: Astoria Boulevard is officially open!
By Loulou Chryssides
After nearly a year of renovations and updates, the Astoria Boulevard N/W stop is officially open for subway riders!
While the subway stop is open and ready for its users, not all additions have been completed. Workers are still in the process of installing four new elevators at the Astoria Blvd. stop, making it one of the only ADA-accessible subway stops in the borough of Queens.
According to the MTA website, other additions will include updated stairways & benches, digital signs, elevated walkways and platform stair enclosures. Already-finished improvements include LED lighting, a brand new mezzanine, new platform canopy roofs, and strengthened column foundations, and more.
