The slippery tiles in the subways stations are now going to be removed. NYC Transit spokeperson told Newsday that the "Italian-made tiles are not the culprit themselves, but rather a shiny coating placed on the porcelain ceramic that gives it a potentially-perilous smoothness."
Stations tiles had been installed in: 86th Street, 77th Street and 116th Street stations on the Lexington Avenue line.
Stations tiles were scheduled to be installed in: 103rd Street, 110th Street and 116th Street stops on the West Side; Delancey/Essex Streets station on the Lower East Side; Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn, and Queens Plaza in Queens.
