Fulton Center

Subway Complex, Lower Manhattan

Fulton Center Subway Complex was renovated and reopened in 2014.

Maspeth Welding furnished and installed miscellaneous steel work including stair railings, stainless steel and curtain wall framing.

“ ‘It is a big job…’

But the bigger challenge was building it.

The Metropolitan Transit Authority’s architects and construction workers had to resolve century-old rivalries among the nine subway lines around Fulton Street, the 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, J, Z and R. Their stations originally belonged to three competing subway companies.

The builders smoothed out connections, diminishing the bobbing-and-weaving that had made navigation at Fulton Center an ordeal.

‘…expect it to become the new paradigm for stations.’”
