According to the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC)
Tram Enclosure Project - South Stairway Closure

Please be advised on Monday, November 26, 2012 work will commence on the handrail and roll-up gate at the south staircase of the Manhattan Tramway Station. During the construction period, the entire south staircase will be closed to the public. The two exit staircases, located at the center of the platform, will serve as entry and exit points to the Tram platform and sidewalk until the work is completed.

Also, the Manhattan Tram Station bench has been gone for over a month. I asked RIOC when it will return?

RIOC's press spokesperson replied:
The bench was removed to install the glass enclosure. After the enclosures are finished, the next scheduled work is the resurfacing of the station floors. Once all of the work is done, in a few months, a new bench will be installed.
More on the Tram Station renovation

from previous post.

UPDATE 8:45 - Roosevelt Island resident Nina NYC comments:
It is hard to believe -- although not impossible -- that RIOC would make up a poor excuse for not having ANY type of bench safely installed -- on either side of the turnstile for Tram passengers --even while the work continues at a snail's pace. The large number of seniors and persons with disabilities who benefit from even a few minutes of sitting should not be overlooked by RIOC and Poma.

Give us a bench !!!!
