From the Dumbo Improvement District:
Repairing DUMBO’s Subway Stations: We Need Your Help!
The York and High Street subway stations that serve DUMBO and our surrounding communities are in very bad shape. Over the coming years ridership at these stations is going to greatly increase as more residents and businesses move into the neighborhood, and more visitors come down to DUMBO to enjoy our growing community and expanding Brooklyn Bridge Park. We need to make sure that our transportation infrastructure is prepared for these changes.
This past spring I asked the MTA to include overhauls for the York and High Street subway stations that serve DUMBO in their capital improvement plan for 2010-2014. A community letter to MTA President Lawrence Reuter has been drafted by the Dumbo Parents’ Organization supporting our request for complete overhauls of these stations. If you would like to sign the letter and support this request please stop by Half Pint (the children’s store on the corner of Washington and Water Sts.) or the DUMBO General Store (the coffee shop on Front St . between Washington and Adams Sts. ) to add your name and signature.
