10th Avenue was a proposed station, first planned as part of the 7 Subway Extension for the IRT Flushing Line of the New York City Subway. It would have been located at 10th Avenue and 41st Street and had two tracks and two side platforms if built. Under the original 2007 plan, there would be one street-level entrance for each direction, and no crossovers or crossunders to allow free transfer between directions.
A $450 million option to build a shell for the station was included as part of the October 2007 contract, requiring action by the city within nine months to have a shell built as part of the initial contract. Reports in late December 2007 indicated that the postponed station might be partially built, should the City of New York and the MTA come to terms on the additional financing for the station shell. In February 2009, the MTA announced that it would build the station if the agency received sufficient funds from the federal economic stimulus package. Otherwise, the station would be cut to keep costs under budget, as the 7 Subway Extension was already costing $2.4 billion.
The station should be built now for the benefit of all the new development of 38th street through 43rd street between 9th Avenue and 12th Avenue.
