MTA delays reopening of Red Hook train station

The reopening of a Red Hook train station has come to a screeching halt.

The MTA says the Smith-9th Street station will not be up and running until this coming fall at the earliest, about six months later than originally promised. The stop, which operates the F and G lines, has been under construction for more than a year.

Commuters complain they've been forced to rely on the B61 bus route, which city Councilman Brad Lander (D-Democrat) has called an "awful line."
