☞ WALK: West 96th Street Station
Anyone taking the 1, 2, 3 trains uptown knows very well that delays have been caused by construction on the weekends. The original subway tiles can be seen only at far northern end of the station (last photo) while the rest of the 1980's beige tiles are being covered up with brand new subway tiles and mosaic tile numbers. One can see the ugly beige 80's tiles at the borders of the top photo since they have yet to be concealed. They usually incorporate the old LaFarge hand-made tiles with the big station numbers into the new design so let's hope there on it for this station.
