    Employees from MTA New York City Transit worked to restore the South Ferry subway station after it was flooded by seawater during Hurricane Sandy.

     

    A retired South Ferry subway station will reopen in the first week of April, marking the first restoration of service to the southern terminus of the No. 1 train since Sandy.

    The storm caused massive damage to the new South Ferry station that opened in 2009.

    The MTA estimates that fully restoring the new station will take up to three years and cost $600 million.

    South Ferry is the last stop on the No. 1 train and a critical link for ferry commuters.

    State officials made the announcement about the old station on Thursday.
