In the latest Earthcam image, it looks like one of the skylight modules on the west side has been removed for some reason......

Cover pieces for the skylights mechanism I would assume are next....they had test-fitted one piece of it prior to skylight installation back in the springtime.

Is this supposed to be a joke? Or are you just being cynical?

Yesterday, I noticed for the first time the air conditioning was on at the platform level.
It made a huge difference.

Thinking about pedestrian flow once the station is finished, I think it will be much better when people can exit over a large part of the center and one of the ends, instead of just at one end like today.

I agree about the flow. I asked one of the security guards at the Church and Vesey entrance if he knew when it would open. He said "they say soon". I responded "They've been saying soon since December" to which he gave me a smile and a nod. I noticed they still have 3 fire extinguishers just tossed on the ground near that entrance, so it may not be near ready for use yet.

I hope that it will be possible to use both platforms for entering/exiting trains like at Newark PATH station.
It will significantly decrease the crowd.
