At the Station
Here's the north-east corner of Fourth & 9th, where the entrance to the subway will be closed for repairs until (at least) January. After repairs are completed, the entrance across the avenue will be next for closure.
By the main entrance token booth, an orange-vested worker there to help the public was hardly a figure of PR cheer. Completion of repairs? A look of bemusement. The opening of the retail spaces? Hah! - the rents would be surely too pricey to attract tenants. I felt I had entered Chekhovian terrain.
