The Tuskegee Airmen Depot, formerly named 100th Street Depot, is a depot for the Manhattan division located at 1552 Lexington Avenue, filling the block bounded by Park Avenue, Lexington Avenue, and 99th and 100th Streets on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The depot was closed in spring 1998 and was reconstructed, while the Michael J. Quill Depot was opened to replace it. The depot reopened on September 7, 2003, taking on a number of routes from the Hudson Pier and Manhattanville Depots. It became the Tuskegee Airmen Depot on March 23, 2012, in honor of the famous World War II airmen. The facility has drawn the ire of many East Harlem residents; many residents cite high asthma rates in the area and the fact that the depot is in a residential area.
