The northeast corner of the Oculus Plaza seems to finally be complete. Can anyone confirm?

It's really unfortunate all the negativity the Oculus has been getting since it opened.
I tried, but I just couldn't find it in my heart to feel bad for him. Instead, I'm irritated that he's contributing to the possibility of copycats and excessive guard railing. Couldn't he have found a less selfish place to attempt it?

I was about to like your post when i realised how cynical it is.
We are the selfish ones:people don't commit suicide in a healthy community..

The mind is a complex thing. It's not one to say of someone who is suicidal and what they're capable of doing.

All the more, the guy was critically injured but I do believe he survived. That's all that matters. Hopefully he can find help so that it doesn't happen again.

Complete, but still roped off. Also, looks like they're getting ready to pave the area east of T2.

When are the connections slated to open? By the end of the year or before or 2018?

This was discussed a while back. This is near the bathrooms on the T2 side.

As it turns out, the blueprint for the WTC station renovation was literally drawn on the floor in red, for anyone curious about what it will look like. I made a rough sketch of the changes here (red=raze / blue=build):



From the (E) to the (R)(W)
