Bleecker Subway Entrance Unboxed
Earlier this year, construction workers at the new Broadway-Lafayette superstation decapitated one of the downtown 6 Bleecker Street entrances. The result was months of sidewalk closure and pedestrian aggravation.
Then in late May, the freshly-built stairwell was temporarily boarded up; a sign on the plywood announced that the entrance would reopen July 9. Obviously, that didn’t happen. But last week, the whole shebang was unboxed, with a new opening date to boot – August 13. Behold the naked metalwork, free from the requisite advertising and station designation. And much like the entrance across Lafayette, this one is also maroon. A new look?
