The new old platform

Yesterday the Manhattan bound platform at Fourth Avenue re-opened.  I'm happy to say the platform doesn't look much different - just some structural work & coats of paint. I'll miss that amazing temporary view (folded up & dismantled with the temporary bridge), & wonder what they'll do when they start working on the other side. Starting next month the Smith & 9th station closes completely for almost a year, with only the grudging MTA offer of increased nightime service on the B61.

Update: The bridge will be back in September, according to one of the construction workers at the station. It will again provide access to the temporary platform, which will then be used for Coney Island bound trains.
