WEST FARMS - The MTA today unveiled $66.5 million in renovations done on the East 180th Street station in West Farms.

Renovations to the 101-year-old station include new countdown clocks, signs and wall art. The station, which provides access to the 2 and 5 lines, has also been made handicap-accessible.
