I should let you guys do mailbags. I asked if anybody knew about the new train station at the new Stadium and here is what we learned:
This blog all a bunch of info. I’m also told, via a MTA mole, that the station is a little behind schedule and will not open until May.
The overpass that will lead to the Stadium is just north of 153rd Street. Another reader sent this info along:
On game days, fans riding the Hudson Line to the stadium get a one-seat ride. Riders on the New Haven and Harlem lines will need to make a simple transfer at certain times. On the way to the weekday and night games, New Haven and Harlem line riders heading south will be directed to get off at the 125th St. station and walk across the platform to a waiting shuttle train to the stadium. Heading home during the work week, those fans will be able to simply board a train at the new station for direct service to their destinations. On weekends, fans from Manhattan will have to take shuttle trains. The different travel patterns are necessary because of the large number of trains – 700 – running to and from Grand Central Terminal on weekdays.
So there you go.
