Station Updates

Smith & 9th Station to re-open by April.  Completion of construction "targeted" for June. (Carroll Gardens Patch).  Well, as deadlines come and go, I'm not holding my breath.  I can't wait to stand on the platform there & take in the views though.  It looks like the boarded up platform windows will be opened up, though that seems too good to be true.
I wonder when the Fourth Ave. renovation work will be complete, and when the retail spaces will be leased out?  Please - a newstand, & a no-nonsense coffee shop.  Something with a counter would be grand. The interior of the main subway entrance looks pretty much its same nicotine-hued self, which is just fine by me, but I wonder if it's going to get a last-minute tarting up? It doesn't exactly shout "Renovation!"  Whatever else, keep the tiled signs, and don't mess with the walkway that overlooks the entrance.  I've spend so many mornings at this station that my feelings are entirely proprietary.
