It doesn't bother me at all. Throw some graffiti on it so it can be 80's NY style!

Speaking of which, according to a ModelD report, they are adding hours of operation for DPM because of "heavy use."

"Heavy Use" seems to be a loose term. I once saw 10 people on there. It was very limiting to my seating choices. I like to have options.

Gotta say I have definitely seen more foot traffic and ridership on the PM as of the last few months, both pre and post Super Bowl. The extended hours to 2 a.m. was definitely needed. Wish they would have made that decision in November.
