NEW YORK (AP) — The old South Ferry Station in Lower Manhattan has reopened.

That’s great news for commuters who have been without a major transit link at the southern tip of Manhattan since Superstorm Sandy.

Sandy caused massive damage to the new $500 million South Ferry station that opened in 2009. It’s closed for a three-year rebuilding.

South Ferry is the last stop on the No. 1 train. It’s a critical link for commuters taking the Staten Island ferry. The closure has forced many to walk several blocks uptown to a catch a train.

The old section of the station is part of the original subway system. Its curved platform can accommodate only half of a 10-car train.
