Seeing as it's April 1st, I'm calling bull$hit.
Your commute is about to get much more wet. We’ve received reports from a couple of sources that as part of the construction at the Newkirk Avenue subway station, the MTA will be installing a small kiosk on one of the platforms. It will look like those ones on some platforms, like 42nd Street in Manhattan, that sells candy, sodas, and newspapers. However, the Newkirk kiosk will also be selling alcohol!
