These are the “lowest rated” of NYC’s 472 subway stations

Uptown subway stations are on the fast track to hell.

A cluster of dirty and unruly train stops in Upper Manhattan and the Bronx was ranked Monday as the five “worst-rated” of New York City’s 472 subway stations, according to the MTA’s latest passenger survey.

The lowest-ranked station in the system is the #2 and #3 train station on West 110th Street — which only had a 19% satisfaction rating since straphangers tore it up for its lack of “personal safety” and “cleanliness” and the worrying number of “people who behave erratically,” according to the survey.

A driver told the Post that the problems were obvious there.

“I was verbally abused once and then spat on my face,” an Upper West Sider named Emily, 39, recalled Monday while waiting for a train at the station.

“I told the conductor and he said, ‘Well, do you want me to call the police and have them come and talk to you?'” she said. “I thought, ‘No, I’m going to get on the train. I’m not staying here.’”

Marjorie, 51, a Westchester school worker, said of the problems at the Harlem train station, “It’s getting worse every day.”

“I don’t take the train at certain times,” she said.

Rounding out the bottom five of the trouble-plagued station list are stops at East 116th Street in East Harlem, Third Ave.-149th Street in the South Bronx, West 125th Street in Harlem, and 191st Street in Washington Heights. Each had an overall satisfaction rate of 29%, traffic officials said.

At the 2 and 5 Third Ave.-149th Street subway station — a major hub with over 11,000 daily passengers — only 12% of straphangers surveyed said they were satisfied with the state of homelessness at the station, the MTA reported.

Tashia Wells, 48, shook her head with a resounding no when asked by The Post if she felt safe at the Bronx transit hub.

“There are people on the train who want to pass out or cut you. They’re crazy,” said Wells, a Bronx woman who works as a guard in Manhattan. “It’s scarier when there are no cops.”

But Wells said she gave up on the city taking action to address the issue.

“They really don’t care as long as we keep working,” she said.

The MTA survey found only 26% satisfaction with “personal safety” on West 125th Street.

“It’s very important that you don’t put your belongings under your arm,” explained Diamond Martinez, 29, as she waited for the train at the station. Martinez said she sees a lot of drugs, including paraphernalia and people using them.

“I’m a little scared when I walk by, people will approach me or ask me for money,” she said. “Lately when you say no to people, they react kind of badly, so it’s scary.”
