South ferry

The station, which had opened 2009, was devastated by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
Noise in the station soars to 111 decibels at the arrival of a train. According to doctors, it takes just one minute in the presence of such a din to sustain permanent hearing loss.
There wasn't much fanfare to the event according to transit enthusiast Brian Weinberg, who was onhand to see the 5:02 a.m. 1 train become the first to open its doors at the newly reopened station.
The MTA is going forward with re-opening the "old" South Ferry station tomorrow. Just make sure you're in one of the first five cars.
Better an old station than no station!
A lot of critical electrical equipment was damaged by the seawater.
Remember when the South Ferry station was totally flooded? It is dry now. But could really use a scrubbing.
Did you not believe the MTA about underwater stations? Oh, well, here is a video the MTA just released of the South Ferry and Whitehall Street station to prove the point:
