The project that is a mere 100 years in the making is reportedly going to be finished in December. For many, long walks to the Lexington avenue line may be a thing of the past within a few months if the MTA is on time with the delivery of new subway stations at East 72nd street, East 86th street and East 96th street.
However, you do not have to wait to see the effects of the 2nd avenue subway line. According to the brokers and developers in the area, the new subway stations are already priced into the cost of apartments east of 3rd avenue in Yorkville.
New condo developments and conversions are coming to market or already in the market according to NYTimes. Many businesses though still remain closed along 2nd avenue but with an end in sight, buyers/renters are willing to make allowances for this temporary inconvenience.
