If there's a fresh coat of paint at your subway station, the bigwigs are on their way.
Transit workers painted support columns on the platforms and in the passageways of three major Manhattan hubs in recent weeks - all on the eves of press conferences, the Daily News has learned.
Stations spruced up for press events
Two of the events featured Gov. Spitzer and Mayor Bloomberg while the third was held by MTA CEO Elliot Sander.
Maintenance workers who paint the stations earn between $26 and $28.64 an hour.
More than a dozen workers converged on the Rockaway Parkway station on the eastern end of the L line in Canarsie, Brooklyn, Thursday as word spread that Sander would be dropping by Friday, workers said.
They scrubbed the joint, did spot painting and even hung new signs, the workers said.
Sorry this story got lost in the holiday shuffle. I wish a bigwig would visit these stations!
