The West Midtown area of Manhattan is one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in the City. New York residents are highly dependent on public transportation and care about the environment so taking the subway eliminates the need to drive or rely on car services.
The MTA is extending the #7 line from Times Square and adding only one new station at Eleventh Avenue and 34th Street. The MTA has dropped its plans for a subway station at Tenth Avenue and 41st Street without consulting with anyone. Taxpayers are paying over one billion dollars to build the entire #7 line extension for just one stop!
We urge you to secure funding for a second subway station at 10th Avenue and 41st Street as part of the extension of the #7 subway line.
