Dear Thomas F. Prendergast,
We are writing to you to request confirmation on work to be done on the 161st Street Subway Station,
commonly referred to as the Yankee Stadium Station. During our last correspondence in January 2014, it
was understood that the 161st Street Subway Station serves as important venue to the economic vitality
of the Bronx. While our request to paint and restore the exterior of the 161st Street Station would not be
accomplished right away, we were pleased to learn that there were long-term plans to paint the station.
It was indicated that there would be a overcoat painting job for the Jerome Avenue 4 Line which would
include painting of the elevated structure from the portal at E. 157th Street to E. 164th Street, as well as
some steel repairs. The contract to do the work was expected to be awarded in 2016 and we are looking
for confirmation on the matter.
As the 161st Street Station continues to grow in popularity, it is becoming increasingly important that the
station offers visitors and commuters a welcoming environment. As elected officials representing the
immediate community in the area, we are requesting a more comprehensive update about the project’s
timeline and feasibility to be carried out in 2016. In this way, we can work collaboratively to address the
community’s expectations from the MTA around this topic.
We appreciate that the Jerome Avenue 4 Line is included in the 2015-2019 MTA Capital Program, and
we eagerly anticipate the enhancement of the 161st Street Subway Station. Please let us know if we can
be of any assistance in this effort. Thank you for your time and consideration.
