The underground Turnstyle subway mall will reopen on Wednesday after being closed since the pandemic shutdowns began. Turnstyle has a wide variety of shops, from mini-restaurants and food stores to places to buy stationery or gifts.
The MTA says it it looking to offer vendors some financial relief: “Lease modifications under consideration include a plan to change fixed rent to a structure based on a percentage of business’ revenues and abating a portion of rent payments that had been previously deferred. National chains and banks would be excluded from these modifications.”
The Turnstyle area can be accessed from Columbus Circle subway entrances, and is on the southern end of the station.
