63rd Street Tunnel Subway Stations No Longer MTA Newest

Since October 28, 1989, the stations that make up the 63rd Street Tunnel extension, including Lex/63rd , Roosevelt Island, and 21st St Queensbridge had the distinction of being the newest stations in the NYC Transit Authority subway system. That answer is no longer accurate.

Today the MTA opened up a new station at South Ferry replacing the old one. One less trivia question where Roosevelt Island is the answer.

  1. WCBS Radio said this morning that South Ferry was the first new subway station in 20 years but didn't identify the one 20 years ago.
    The Times article from 1989 brings back memories of the Q, when it was easy to get on a train coming in from Queens in the morning rush hour.
