South Ferry Subway Station To Finally Open

South Ferry Subway Station To Finally Open
NYC's old South Ferry subway station is reopening six months after being inundated by Superstorm Sandy.

There's good news for commuters who've been without a major transit link at the southern tip of Manhattan since Superstorm Sandy.

The old South Ferry Station is being reopened on Thursday morning.

Sandy caused massive damage to the new $500 million South Ferry station that opened in 2009. It's closed for a three-year rebuilding.

South Ferry is the last stop on the No. 1 train. It's a critical link for commuters taking the Staten Island ferry. The closure has forced many to walk several blocks uptown to a catch a train.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority made the announcement Wednesday.
