All the residents of the Argyle, Novo Park Slope (well, someday), the new Fourth Ave. Hot Karl and other buildings going up on Brooklyn's new Park Avenue are going to have to wait a long time for the local subway station to gets its extreme makeover. As it turns out, the Brooklyn Paper reports the ambitious plan to "renovate the shabby Fourth Avenue station in Park Slope into a glittering, light-filled, Euro-styled stunner" is getting moved to the trash folder. Was it only last fall that the reno was trotted out as one of the few pieces of good news about the work that will close the Smith-9th Street Station and leave Slopers that use the F Train thinking warmly about commuting by L Train? Yup. Alas, the overall $250 million project has gotten a BudgetChop from $250M to $187.8M and the Fourth Ave. plans have been deleted.
