New Look at Knickerbocker Ave. Station

Trains on the M line are once again servicing the Knickerbocker Avenue station in Bushwick after the stop-which had been closed for six months due to repairs- was reopened last Friday morning, Feb. 8. As noted, the project was completed as part of the MTA’s station renewal program, which is ongoing at four other stations on the M line in Ridgewood and Bushwick. Among the improvements made were a new stationhouse and mezzanine, refurbished staircases, a renovated platform and additional lighting. The project’s completion was celebrated at a ribbon-cutting ceremony held by the MTA and City Council Member Diana Reyna on Monday morning, Feb. 11. Reyna is shown (fourth from left) in front of the turnstiles of the Knickerbocker Avenue station along with (from left to right) Assemblyman Rafael Espinal, State Sen. Martin Malavé Dilan and Brooklyn Community Board 4 Chairperson Julie Dent, District Manager Nadine Whitted, Vice Chairperson Martha Brown and Parks Committee Chair Robert Camacho.
