Transit officials dropped plans to build an additional 7 subway line station Thursday.
Officials eliminated the plan to build a station at 10th Avenue and 41st Street when they were unable to obtain the $450 million to complete the project.
The Bloomberg administration said a station is not necessary since the neighborhood is already developed.
Advocates for the station do not think that is an excuse to stop construction.
"Is that the only reason we build subway stations now, to spur development? How about to serve the people that are already in a neighborhood? I just don't buy that logic at all," said Andrew Albert of the NYC Transit Riders Council.
Tenth Avenue Subway Station Scrapped
Well the Upper East Side is developed too, which is why it needs a second subway line now. DUH!
