Work is supposed to start this fall on renovating and restoring F Train station that spans Fourth Avenue in Park Slope. Today's amNY has some details on the facelift, which will include a new copper roof, new exterior and, best of all, windows overlooking Brooklyn's New Park Avenue, aka Fourth Avenue. The grungy station is actually is actually in the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1933 and the biggest change since then is that the windows were covered over. It's part of the same work that will shut down the Smith-9th Station for up to two years as the city tries to keep the Culver Viaduct over Gowanus from falling down.
