Newport Station Rotting

Newport Path Station, above ground may look like a sleek, modern transport hub, an illusion sustained with the new turn styles, down the shiny escalators and tunnels lined with tiles and decorative art but once you get to the stairs down to the platform, it’s moldy and decayed. This path station is rotting away. I wrote about Newport Corroding here, a year ago. It hasn’t improved since, quite the opposite. Now the rust, mold and disrepair is spreading from the platform up to the stairwells. It’s gross, unsightly and more than likely a health and safety hazard. It’s more cave than subway station now, the Hudson river leaking through.
