New South Ferry Subway Station to Open Next Month

lowermanhattan.info

The new South Ferry subway station is due to open in January.

The South Ferry subway terminal -- New York’s first new subway station in nearly two decades -- is slated to finally open in January.

The $530 million South Ferry Terminal at the southern tip of Manhattan was constructed under the old 1 subway station, built in 1905. 

It's the first new station since 1989 and is also the first federally funded post 9/11 recovery project to be completed.

The station will link the subway with buses and the Staten Island Ferry. Wide, granite platforms will be temperature controlled, keeping the station cool even on the hottest days.

Riders can transfer to the R and W lines.

More trains can be accommodated than in the old station, cutting four to six minutes off the average 1 rider’s trip.
