Now that the South Ferry subway station is back in the news due to the imminent opening of the new 2-track subway terminal, I’d like to clear up a few misconceptions. South Ferry misconception #1: A new subway station was needed because the loop station can only platform 5 cars of the train. Reality: The platform can actually hold 7 cars, but due to several reason (both good and bad), only 5 cars can be opened. South Ferry misconception #3: Being able to use all 10-cars on the way to the ferry is so awesome! Reality: Subway riders position themselves on the train so that they are closest to their exit.
One big problem on extending the platform is that they would have to relocate the gap fillers if they brought the first car forward.


Only the tourists had a problem getting into one of the first 5 cars and I think being yelled at by a NYC Subway Conductor added to their experience.
In summary, the same or more improvements could have been made for a lot less money by simply modifying the old terminal instead of building a new one. So if instead of building a whole new station you just wanted to extended the length of the existing station, you’d only need to build 3 car lengths of platform, not 5 car lengths. The closest exit from the new subway terminal to the ferry terminal will be at the front of the train.
I do not think the curve slowed down trains any more than the curve saved time with no having to change ends. I have seen no evidence that the new terminal will allow NYCT to run more trains per hour than the old terminal.


In fact, there was a second entrance built – it was used while the new ferry terminal was being built and the original entrance had to be temporarily closed. Seven years from genesis top opening is pretty impressive, considering the complexity of the engineering to go under the other structures and not too badly impact the area. The old station was only a short distance below ground, and the entrance was indoors inside the ferry terminal.
