An Upper West Side subway station is out of service through late February due to “structural maintenance,” according to the MTA.
Downtown 1 trains and local 2 trains will skip the West 79th Street stop during the period, the MTA announced on Monday.
The MTA suggested using the nearby 86th Street or 72nd Street stations, and the following routes as travel alternatives.
“For service to this station, take the 1 or 2 to 72 St and transfer to an uptown 1 or 2 local,” the MTA suggests. “For service from this station, take an uptown 1 or 2 to 96 St and transfer to a downtown train.”
The 79th Street 1 train station is one of the original 28 stations to open within the city in 1904. The station is designated as a New York City Landmark and also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
