After years of digging up poor Houston Street, it seemed that the folks in charge of rebuilding our fair city had finished the big job. Then along came the MTA to rip it up again. The MTA's plans have been kept somewhat hidden from view, until now: It's a super station! Via Lee Harris Pomeroy Architects, we see the reshuffling down below will connect the ancient and narrow Bleecker Street stop to the massive multi-line station at Broadway and Houston. And we haven't even mentioned the trippy LED art yet. Yeah, it may be a big mess right now?complete with giant holes and hidden stairways and excavations?but check out the gallery above for the new and improved underground to come circa 2011. Give or take.
