Two Brooklyn neighborhoods will have to wait another month before they get their subway station back.

The Smith and 9th Street station that services Red Hook and Carroll Gardens has been closed since June and was supposed to re-open this month.

But now, officials say the F and G trains won't start making regular stops until late April.

The reconstruction work included rehabilitated stairs and platforms and new lighting.
