Overview

Opened: 4/21/1917

46th Street/Bliss Street is next. This station has recently been renovated by NYCT employees (as opposed to outside contractors). The north exit leads to 47th St. and the south exit to 46th St. Both exits have slate blue tile walls and tile floors and offer the ability to cross over between directions during the hours each entrance is open (the 47th St. entrance is part-time). New lighting has been installed on the platforms, and new stained glass mosaic artwork installed in the windows, including one panel depicting various baseball scenes (which might more appropriately be installed at Willets Point/Shea Stadium!).
