It's possible that Melrose and Tremont stations are being dismantled soon.

No , theres no chance of that...they just spent hundreds of Millions overhauling the stations....there limited stop stations since there in the City zone. Same happens on the LIRR , but they have high enough ridership to stay open. Most people who use that station commute to Connecticut or Westchester Counties.

Well those areas are already built up , I should have said the Hundreds of Millions were spent on Track and signal replacement in the Tremont Trench of the MNRR... But MNRR stations current and future in the Bronx are for the current residents and not the developers....

The area looks like crap right now. You have to remember this overall area saw decades of disinvestment. This includes a period of an "arson epidemic". In my opinion the changes have been coming at a rapid pace. The general area has seen so much new development, it has to be among the fastest growing areas in the country. There is a brand new massive development right down the block from the station. I am positive more or planned or will be.
