Not a minute too soon, a new Manhattan-bound side elevator opened this weekend in the Roosevelt Island MTA NYC Subway station. RIOC’s callous disregard for residents left physically challenged individuals without safe and effective options for travel all weekend as well as most of the time on weekdays.

But the new elevator, shiny, quiet and smooth in operation, solves that. Its modern style contrasts nicely against the station’s poured concrete, brutalist design.

Families enter the new elevators, fitting two strollers in easily.

As you can see from the video, not just the physically challenged but stroller moms and dads are welcome too.
