Beach 98 Station Set For Fix
Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer has announced that the MTA New York City Transit has heeded her pleas and those of Borough President Helen Marshall by agreeing to remove the long-unused stairway at the west end of the Rockaway Park-bound platform of the Beach 98th Street-Playland station on the "A" and Rockaway Park "S" Shuttle Lines.
Assemblywoman Pheffer learned of their decision in a March 13, letter she received from Katherine Lapp, Executive Director of the MTA.
The subject of the stairway was raised at a meeting last summer by Pheffer and Marshall, and after investigation by MTA officials, it was agreed that the work would be performed.
Completion of the work is scheduled for April 30.
