Real estate investors who bet the new Second Avenue Subway would bring thousands of new commuters past their buildings can relax.
Since the line opened on Jan. 1 with three new stations and a new entrance at 63rd Street, ridership has grown steadily by approximately 8,000 daily riders per week, hitting 155,000 daily riders on Jan. 27.
“The Second Avenue Subway has already become an integral part of the Upper East Side, and these ridership figures show just how important this expansion project is to the neighborhood and our economy,” said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
