The first of the new citywide bus shelters designed by Grimshaw Architects has opened in New York City.
Featuring a stainless steel portal frame and tempered glass, the shelter is part of a billion-dollar contract with Grimshaw and manufacturer Cemusa for new street furniture in the city.
There will eventually be 3,300 of the shelters across the city. 330 Grimshaw-designed news-stands and 20 public toilets will also open in the next few months.
The inaugural bus stop is located at Queens Boulevard and 82nd Avenue.
