The MTA Writes Back

A month ago I wrote a civil email to the MTA to try and find out how the Fourth Avenue station work was coming along.  Last week I got a reply!

A terse response, certainly. Yesterday I spoke to a couple of friendly MTA guys fixing up one of the station stores, and they told me work was "way behind schedule".  No surprises there.  I should have also asked them about the VFW post at the northeast corner of Fourth Avenue, which has been buried under station scaffolding for years, and is always shuttered when I pass it by.  Does it/will it remain?   I still want to rent the party room..
