MTA rep Andrew Inglesby said the Authority is looking at how to add a second entrance to the F train station, which has long been a bottleneck for the ever-growing population of residents, office workers and tourists in Dumbo — although the official remained tight-lipped on any timeline or scope of their investigation.

“[We] are doing studies currently right now to see how we can put a second entrance [and] egress into the station,” Inglesby said. “We are doing an active study, we are hoping to provide the community with information on that relatively soon.”

The station at the corner of Jay Street opened in 1936 and offers only one way to get from the platform to ground level — which forces straphangers to walk up several flights of stairs, before traversing through a seemingly endless sloping tunnel, up another set of steps, and then through a narrow group of turnstiles.

For context, I found a design firm with photos of the station layout and a proposed station design:

My question is with all "studies": Why hasn't this been built yet?

Looks like the design was done on the architect's own time in 2016, since he works there. Good work! If you search "York Street Subway"at the same site as the link above below you'll see there have been two new updates, and pols are interested, March 21 and 22, 2021.
