NEW YORK CITY-The Bloomberg administration said Wednesday it’s applying for $3 million in federal TIGER II grants for a feasibility study on building a Tenth Avenue station for the No. 7 subway line extension. The move to possibly reinstate the subway stop, which was dropped from the line in 2008 after the Hudson Yards Development Corp. said the funding wasn’t there to build two stations, comes after months of lobbying by the Real Estate Board of New York and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn.

“We need engineers to confirm that it’s viable, but we’re confident we’ve found a way to keep the prospect of a future Tenth Avenue station alive without delaying the current extension,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg says in a statement. “Our priority has always been extending the train to the Hudson Yards area to help spur major commercial and residential growth there, and we’re on track to complete it by the end of 2013.”
