MTA Head Tours Beach 90 Street Station
By Gary G. Toms
On Friday, January 24, Metropolitan Transit Authority Executive Director Katherine N. Lapp, pictured with State Senator Malcolm A. Smith (right) and Democratic District Leader Lew M. Simon, took a tour of the Beach 90 Street (Holland) subway station.
Lapp came to the Rockaways to inspect fences that were erected last week by MTA workers. The fences were placed in effort to deter vandals from throwing large rocks onto the homes of nearby residents.
Several members from local NYPD precincts, such as P.O. Pete Rahaniotis (100 Precinct Community Affairs Officer) and Captain Mark Watenberg (of Transit District 23) were also part of the tour group.
