This video shows some stunning views on the hub in the beginning and at the end (the 1 WTC scenes in between could also be of interest for some )

Does anyone know the height of the longest rib and the shortest rib? Also the height of the roof of the oculus itself?

I really like the render they showed on 1:29 1:31. I hope this will be a exact copy of the render or even better than the render.
An also is this a updated render this is the one they showed in the video

Some news from http://www.lowermanhattan.info/news/..._to_86269.aspx

Quote:
At the CB1 meeting, Guzi said installation of the WTC Transportation Hub's giant steel arches continues, with 60 "ribs" (about half of the total) now being welded into place to form the oculus. The hub's "wings," which will extend from the lower arches, will become visible by approximately mid-2014. Underground, marble is being installed throughout the mezzanine, and completion of the permanent PATH platforms is on track. Sometime in 2014, pedestrians are expected to have a new underground access route to the PATH station directly from the newly opened West Concourse.

The person does not know how to use their equipment. They is trying to take the crown from "Britta Perry" as the worst photographer ever.

Any chance they might get this one completed earlier than December 2015? I'm planning to go next year in summer and would obviously love to walk around in this thing! I guess it's safe to say it won't be finished by then though since I don't remember a single time construction on the WTC site reached its goal earlier than planned. But well, one can still hope...

Some sections are yet to be opened this year: platforms A&B and a pathway through Oculus to MTA's Fulton Street and Tower 4. This pathway will be located adjacent to Oculus' south storefronts.

Ever since the earthcam went down, there hasn't been a single post with manually taken pics of the site. Is there nobody in the area taking photos!!

Are you sure the Oculus path will open this year? That would be great news for my commute if so...
