Through The Bars

The train stations in Brownsville have recently been remodeled but I can’t figure out the logic behind the remodel.  In the freezing temps people stand on a platform with metal seats and mesh windows that let the cold air blow onto the people standing on the platform.

It’s bad enough that the remodel of an elevated platform did not include an elevator or an escalator but seats that freeze and holes that let cold air hit you in both directions don’t make any sense.

Yes, the remodel is an improvement but is it too much to ask for a design that makes sense in every season?
