In what is clearly a city-wide construction trend, the new Metro-North stop serving the South Bronx and Yankee Stadium is suffering from increased costs. This isn’t a surprise, but it does tax the already-beleaguered MTA. While some board members want the Yanks to shoulder some portion of the increases, in reality, the transit agency and the city should have worked out the cost increases before building this stop. It does, after all, serve a far better purpose than simply providing more public transit to Yankee Stadium.
