Check Out The Beautifully Restored East 180th Street 2/5 Station In The Bronx: Gothamist

Beautiful skylights at the newly renovated 100 year old station.
While most of the subway stations we use on a regular basis are
nothing more than subterranean whirlpools of shame and desperation, a
some lucky straphangers in the Bronx are about to start enjoying a
veritable cathedral to commuting. Today the MTA unveils a completely
renovated East 180th Street 2/5 Station. With this 2 year,
$66.5-million dollar project completed, the station is now fully
handicap-accessible, and fully face-lifted!
Located at the southern tip of Bronx Park, the 100-year-old station
services both the Bronx Botanical Garden and Bronx Zoo and sees over
2-million riders annually. The renovations give the station a
significant cosmetic update, including new mosaic tiles, a large
timepiece, and restored platforms, mezzanines and windows.
