Scaled-Back 96th Street Station to Get Bird and Water Sounds
NY1 reports the MTA is putting speakers in the IRT station at 96th Street so that subway riders may experience "sounds of nature" while waiting for their train. These will include "chirping birds, rustling leaves, and a flowing brook." Maybe they anticipate disappointment over the scaled-back redesign of the station, and hope to soothe grumpy patrons with audio of babbling brooks and cheerful birds. Or else they've decided that the incursion of nature, in the form of water leaks, at the South Ferry Station is a can't-beat-'em-join-'em situation. Jumanji!
