Build The Station: West 41st & Tenth

As work proceeds on a $2-billion extension of the No. 7 subway line, which currently bypasses a station previously planned for West 41st Street and Tenth Avenue, the Real Estate Board of New York has brought together a coalition to restore the subway stop.

The group is seeking federal funds to give the 7 line two stops west of its current terminus at Times Square, and has launched a website,www.buildthestation.com, to help publicize the campaign.

Currently, the only station planned for the 7 extension is slated for 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue, near the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The West 41st stop was scrapped in 2008 after the Hudson Yards Development Corp. said the funding wasn’t there to build two stations.

The station is a shovel ready, green transportation infrastructure project that would take three years to complete.
