It Only Took the MTA Four Decades to Reopen Subway Entrance

The MTA has finally gotten around to renovating a Brooklyn subway stop that has been closed for forty long years. Straphangers in Park Slope can now enter the 4 Avenue/9 Street station for the F/G trains from the east side of the street. Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, who helped raise the money to renovate the long shuttered location, attended the reopening and here he is looking like he just ducked under the newly installed turnstiles.
