Subway Station
59th Street and
Lexington Avenue Stations
This subway station is used by 85,000 passengers daily. It is the fourth busiest station in the system and a major transfer point between the IRT and BMT subway lines.
Extensive mosaic patterns, now obscured by conduits and structural deterioration, will be cleaned, restored and replicated. New stairways threaded into above ground buildings will create a street level identity for the underground space.
