New Utrecht-62nd Street Station Stairway Temporarily Closed


We were recently tipped off that, since at least sometime last week, the stairway that allows you to get from the open cut Sea Beach Line to the elevated West End Line at New Utrecht Avenue-62nd Street has been temporarily closed.

It might actually be a good thing, as Brian Hedden informed Bensonhurst Bean that the old stairs “looked like they were about to collapse.”

In lieu of an in-station transfer, the MTA is offering commuters a free out-of-station swipe between the N train and D train.

Things are expected to get back to “normal” in May.
