MTA may open old South Ferry station while Sandy damage is repaired

The old South Ferry subway station may reopen temporarily.

The new $500 millionĀ  station opened in 2009. But it was completely flooded during the storm.

Officials say it could take 3 years to rebuild.

Now they’re thinking about reopening the old station in the interim.

Getting the old one up and running will take less time than fixing the new station.
