Yorkville Residents Sue MTA Over Subway Entrances
For the second time in two years, the residents of Yorkshire Towers at 315 E. 86th Street are suing MTA for placing two subway entrances right outside their 21-story building - right in front of their driveway and parking garage, DNAinfo.com reported. The lawsuit was filed March 15th, and states, "the agency flouted its own guidelines and environmental review by proceeding with the plan for the stop on the long-delayed subway line." So what do the residents want? They want the MTA to completely stop work outside their building, and only have one subway entrance. This would follow suit of residents on 72nd Street, who recently won a case against MTA to move an entrance right in front of their building. But the lawsuit didn't work two years ago, when Yorkshire Towers raised similar legal concerns, and they were thrown out by a judge.
