Hudson Yards, an area isolated for decades by a massive, open rail yard, is being transformed into one of the city's most convenient neighborhoods with the historic introduction of new mass transit
into the neighborhood. The centerpiece is the extension of the No. 7 Subway
from its current terminus at Times Square to a new station between 10th and 11th avenues at West 34th Street.
Visitors can access the North Tower
at Hudson Yards directly from the No. 7 Subway station. With this new subway station at the front door of Hudson Yards, the new No. 7 Subway
will link the neighborhood to the 8th Avenue, 7th Avenue, 6th Avenue and Lexington Avenue subway lines.
Service on the new No. 7 Subway will begin in 2014—more than a year before the first building
at Hudson Yards opens.
