Renovate the East Broadway Subway Station NOW

309 Signatures Goal: 500


The East Broadway station complex is in desperate need of a renovation. This station is the primary source of public transportation for a large section of the Lower East Side and Chinatown. Join SPaCE (Seward Park and Canal East Block Association) and demand that this neglected station be immediately surveyed and prioritized for renovation to address its many on-going problems, including:


- crumbling infrastructure (ceiling, platform edges)

- poor ventilation

- garbage strewn tracks

- excessive rat population

- difficulty navigating various levels and staircases

- numerous leaks and poor drainage

- poor lighting

- damaged tiles

- inaudible public address system

- peeling paint

- general shabby and unpleasant appearance

- lack of an elevator to provide access to the disabled


The residents of the Lower East Side and Chinatown deserve an upgraded and modernized subway station just like scores of stations around New York City that have been renovated over the last 20 years. The East Broadway station has been neglected for far too long and with the Essex Crossing development bringing new residential and commercial traffic to the area in the coming years, the time is right to improve the East Broadway subway station and bring it in to the 21stCentury.

    There is now a large amount of some kind of unknown fungus eating up the Southern-most part of the wall at the Brooklyn Bound platform.
