MTA’s Park Slope 7th Ave. F/G Stop Welcomes 3 Brand New Subway ElevatorsNovember 21, 2023
MTA unveiled three new elevators at the 7th Ave F and G train station in Park Slope, Brooklyn for increased accessibility. MTA Chairman Janno Lieber referred to this as a long-awaited initiative that was pushed by the Park Slope community. The station lacked accessibility for a long time, as stated by Quemuel Arroyo, the MTA’s chief accessibility officer. These three new elevators at the Brooklyn IND stop represent the seventh subway station to receive accessibility improvements from the transit agency this year. They hope to complete five more stations by the end of this year, and the current capital plan earmarks $5.2 billion for accessibility improvements in 66 stations. In relation to this news, there is also a photo of MTA Chair & CEO Janno Lieber announcing the opening of ADA elevators at the 7 Ave. station on the F/G lines on Tuesday.
