New Subway Station Complex Unveiled in Long Island City

Straphangers now have a new station complex at Court Square in Queens that links the No. 7, G, M and E trains.

The $61 million renovation and expansion of the station took two years and was largely paid for Citigroup, which was required by the city zoning code to contribute to the upgrade in exchange for approval of a 15-story development just north of the complex.

The last phase of the project will begin later this month when workers start replacing platforms at the Court Square Station of the 7 train. Previously, riders who wanted to switch from the G to those other trains had to leave their station and walk a block or more. Now those transfers can be made without moving through a turnstile.
