Locals demand second entrance to ‘dangerous’ York Street station


Citing hazardous overcrowding at the York Street subway station, frustrated neighbors are sounding the alarm on the need for a second entrance to the F train depot — which sees frequent bottlenecks on its single staircase amid the area’s growing population.

The MTA promised in March to study the feasibility of adding a second entrance to the station, which sits on the border of Dumbo and Downtown Brooklyn, but they blew past a June 30 deadline to provide results for that study, and the agency has declined to announce a new timeline.
