Tenants sue MTA over 2nd Avenue subway entrance
NEW YORK -- Residents of a New York City apartment building are suing the MTA over the proposed placement of the Second Avenue subway entrance.
The tenants association and owners of the Yorkshire Towers at East 86th Street say the proposal will make the building's midblock entrance one of the most dangerous places in the city.
According to the Daily News, the lawsuit claims the agency flouted its own guidelines and environmental review by proceeding with the plan.
The lawsuit seeks to force the MTA to conduct an analysis of the proposed single-entrance plan to the 86th Street stop.
A federal judge dismissed a similar suit brought by the same group in 2011 because the statute of limitations had passed.
The MTA declined to comment.
