At last, all’s well at Stillwell Avenue.

Hours after The Brooklyn Paper revealed last week that MTA bureaucrats had trapped the Lola Staar boutique in their own black hole, the transit agency finally begun processing Dianna Carlin’s paperwork for her shop in the Coney Island subway station.

Carlin had been trying since February to get the MTA to approve her blueprints. Despite a letter from a local state senator in April, it was only our story that got her train out of the station.

She still has to alter some electrical designs, but at least she got an answer.

“After six months of waiting, phone calls, and urging them to review my plans, on the day your article came out, they found the time to ‘review’ my plans!” Carlin said. “They came back with more comments for my architect, but progress is being made! Hooray!”
