What? People in New York love the Gehry building. The ones that know Gehry say it's the only / one of the only good buildings he's ever designed. If there's a building that a lot of New Yorkers hate it's the new One WTC or 432 Park Ave.

Prior to my comment, there were some ugly comments with regard to his building.

Nah. It looks great from everywhere, even sits nice on the skyline. Wrong opinion is wrong.

This New Yorker likes the Gehry building. At least it has character. On the other hand, 432 Park just pokes up into the skyline like a giant french fry...

One can see installed glass sections an central North part. I am sure that at central South too, but it cannot be proved because of luck of access to this zone.

Are T2/T4 entrances set to open by the end of this month? When will Platform B open?
