The work is part of NYCT’s Re-NEW-vation Program, which utilizes planned service outages to perform station-wide repairs, enhancements, and deep cleaning providing customers with brighter and better station environments.

Court St Station “re-NEW-vation”

NYCT workers deep cleaned and replaced, where necessary, extensive sections of wall tiles throughout the station. Lighting fixtures were updated with LED lights, brightening darkened areas. Cracks in the concrete along the platforms and mezzanines were repaved and repaired, alleviating tripping hazards.

Outdated signage was taken down and new and clearer signs were posted where needed. The iconic subway globes located at entrances were scrubbed clean. Drains were inspected and cleared to prevent possible backups during future rain events.

Workers also scrapped, primed, and repainted the entire stations. Employee facilities, including the breakroom and bathrooms, also received a refresh with new lighting and repainted surfaces.

“I’m proud of all the hard work NYCT employees put in to bring the Re-NEW-vation Program to 53 stations across the system in 2023,” said New York City Transit President Richard Davey. “That’s 53 stations whose customers are experiencing cleaner, brighter, and better stations, which is part of our ongoing mission for faster, cleaner, safer service.”
