The 7 Train: Minutes to Midtown exhibition is currently on display at the Grand Central Terminal Gallery Annex through October 29th. The exhibit showcases historic and present-day photographs, artifacts, and documents from the New York Transit Museum’s collection to show how the 7 line and Hudson Yards Station have developed over the last hundred years.
Dattner Architects and WSP’s project extended the Number 7 Subway line from its original terminus at 41st Street in Times Square to the new 34th Street Hudson Yards Station. Opened in 2015, the station created a necessary connection from Queens to Manhattan’s West Side. In the station’s first year, over 525,000 people rode the 7 line each day. This marked increase in ridership from previous years is evidence that this major infrastructure upgrade is a catalyst for the increased commercial and residential development of the neighborhood around Hudson Yards Station. Dattner Architects is proud to be a part of the changing west side.
