New Entrance to GCT / East Side Access

Post by JCGUY » Wed Oct 23, 2013 1:06 pm

It appears that the new entrance to Grand Central on 47th between Park and Lex is open. The entrance/exit is best accessible from tracks 11/13 and I believe that it also connects to the perpendicular 47th street corridor below the tracks. I didn't notice any announcement of the opening, which may be because the project was so severely delayed. Construction began in 2010 with an announced September 2011 expected completion date.
