SEE: New Elevators Unveiled At Brooklyn Museum Subway Station

A long-awaited project to make the subway station at the Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Gardens accessible has finished, the MTA announced.

Transit officials and leaders from the two cultural institutions unveiled the improvements — including a new elevator — to the Eastern Parkway-Brooklyn Museum subway stop on Friday.

The upgrades, which were first announced in 2018, make the busy 2 and 3 train station directly outside the two Brooklyn destinations fully accessible for those with disabilities. About 4,000 riders used the Brooklyn Museum station each day before the coronavirus pandemic, officials said.

New elevators, expanded mezzanines and rebuilt stairs were among the upgrades to the Prospect Heights station.
