Re: OPENED Re: 42nd Street Shuttle Reopens Tuesday 9/7/2021.

The passageway is not as narrow as it appears in the video, nor is it as long as I expected (nowhere near as long as the passageway from the IND to the Flushing line 5 Av station), and it is beautifully decorated, with stunning mosaics and video displays. Even the opposite wall has very attractive matching accent tiles, and as a bonus, the original 1904 ceiling is exposed and visible, including the triangular supports.

The stairs down to the IND platforms cut through the Track #2 trackway, so it would have been complicated to also use that for the passageway.

Upon entering the passageway from the IND, the first countdown clock is for the shuttle; the reverse side was not working when I was there, showing only the date and time in a large font. At the west end of the passageway the next countdown clock is for the N,Q,R,W; the reverse shows the B,D,F,M. There is no clock for the 1,2,3, which seems to be an obvious oversight.
