The city released on Thursday its preliminary vision to revitalize Brooklyn’s third busiest transit station. Council Member Rafael Espinal Jr. and Borough President Eric Adams, along with the city’s Economic Development Corporation, laid out a plan to transform Broadway Junction, which connects six residential neighborhoods via five subway lines and six bus routes, into an accessible, attractive hub. The plan falls under the East New York Neighborhood Plan, a rezoning approved by the city in 2016.
