The MTA posted a nice video about the expansion. I'm planning on visiting this upcoming weekend.

In a West Side neighborhood long isolated from the rest of Manhattan, crowds gathered on Sunday for a truly rare sight in New York City: the opening of a new subway station. Train aficionados and local families streamed in, squealing in delight and snapping photos of the city’s first new subway station in a quarter century

It was I think originally just to be a shell, to be fitted out later when $$ were available, but even that got cut back. As a minimum I believe they graded the line so the station could be built later. Somewhere recently I saw detailed drawings from an earlier plan with a lot of detail. Others here will know more or look in past posts. Some of the politicians were making noise about it again at the celebrations the other day, but finding money for that and 2nd ave??? I doubt it..
Now, can they add another stop between TS and this station to better serve the west side?
Where does the track actually exist underground? Could a stationhead actually pop up at 10th and 39th, for instance? Or at least at 11th and 42nd, if the rails are that far north?
