I didn't realize demolition of the temporary station would begin so soon. That's wonderful news. I was expecting it to begin once the Hub was fully complete.

Does anyone exactly know when the day street passage will connect with the liberty street passage? When the occult finally opens or something along those lines?

Unfortunately there's a few very non-specific times presented in this story "the existing path station will be demolished in the coming months" That demolition was supposed to start at the beginning of the year. In the handouts, there is no date specified for the opening of the T2 and T4 entrances to PATH, other than "in the weeks following May 7"

In case you didn't know already, Newark line passengers will soon join the Hoboken line passengers, about 3 hours from now. FROM THIS POINT ON, THE OLD STATION WILL BE CLOSED AND REMOVED!



Workers were frantically working overnight, seen here at 11:45 pm, to finish the next section and the platform.



The new turnstyles from the new entrance through 2 WTC have already been installed.

Today the Port Authority opened PATH Platform B at the World Trade Center Transportation Hub for approximately 50,000 average weekday PATH riders

Everything looks so nice and clean until you see these rusty old trains pull into the station

Neither old nor rusty, just very dirty. I'm assuming they'll use a freshly washed one for the official "grand opening".

As Oculus at World Trade Center Opens, So Does a Neighborhood

DAVID W. DUNLAP
MAY 6, 2015

Santiago Calatrava’s Oculus, that unearthly winged structure taking form at the World Trade Center, will open to limited pedestrian traffic in June.

This will give the public its first glimpse of a majestic and luminous space — framed by soaring, softly curving white ribs and the ribbons of light between them — that looks like nothing so much as the nave of a cathedral by Gaudí.

Or like a turkey skeleton after it’s been stripped clean at Thanksgiving.

The debate over the $3.9 billion World Trade Center Transportation Hub, of which the Oculus is the aesthetic and retail centerpiece, is only beginning. Love it or hate it, however, there is no denying its magnitude.

Yes... I think it is... Ok so when does the other half of Path Hall open? Seems there is still a giant temporary wall on the end opposite of the oculus side.

Wow.. the scale of this on the inside is even more impressive than I imagined, and this isn't even the oculus. Looks beautiful!

The design of those trains seems very botched. They're neither sleek nor streamlined. Look at the design of 5 year old trains in Europe or Japan...
