Red Hook, Gowanus, and Carroll Gardens commuters, rejoice: the Smith-9th Street subway station is slated to open April 22. The stop, servicing the F and G trains, has been closed since 2011, and its reopening faced delays in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Between the station’s reopening and the full line inspection the MTA has in store, the G train may soon actually start to resemble a reliable method of transportation.
