Escalator Service at 59th Street Subway 50% Restored

Well, I guess that’s at least half way cool.  It seems that the up escalator at the 59th Street/Columbus Circle station has been restored.  After what’s been about 4 months or more (?), that thing is finally getting back up and running.

Unfortunately, I can’t get on the MTA’s case for this because it is not controlled by them.  The escalators are actually run by the Time Warner Center itself.

What’s funny is that they can fix the mall escalator in a matter of hours.  Hell, it only took a week to install them new in the first place.  However, when it comes to the subway, it takes forever.
