So what is the point of the lights on the wings? I mean if they were decorative than wouldn't it look a lot better to put one in every spot instead of small clusters? I can't think of another reason for the lights since surely the light doesn't illuminate the ground from up that high.

I was looking at the Transportation Hubs site, and I saw wood that looks like they are making the other side of the curb to make the sidewalk and soon Fulton Street. I saw the wood across the sidewalks made this summer next to Two World Trade Center.

They are currently installing bollards lining Fulton along the Oculus.

Just read the thread and you have more information than you could possibly use!

An amazing sculpture of a building!

A city comprised of all sculpture buildings wouldn't be good. But as a cap for an underground transit station this is an incredible work of art and addition to the city. And that's coming from someone who is critical of the imperfect rib spacing and other aspects of the WTC complex.

I can't wait for the entire complex to be finished. The money involved, time schedule or design can be debated. But when finished the end result will be spectacular. Criticism aside, I will genuinely enjoy the human accomplishment that is evident in the new WTC.

The sad thing is that its really a shopping mall, with a train station off to one side.

The same thing could be said about every airport.

And why is it "sad" to have retail in a transit station? It is an appropriate mix and a good way to structure a city. It is the equivalent of street level shops in office and residential towers. Shops belong along public pedestrian space. That's been the norm for thousands of years.

Having retail itself is not sad, but it appears to be the focus of the way the hub is organized, dedicating the area under the oculus to shopping. In Grand Central, the main hall is the hub of people moving to and from the trains, and the retail is adjacent. Here it appears retail is front and center and the trains are adjacent. That being said, I've not been in the station recently, so maybe my perceptions from what I've read are not what the final product will be like.

The retail is in the main hall...What is currently opened, now, are some of the councourse areas.

They built the station around where the tracks and platforms had been, not the other way around. If they put the headhouse directly over the tracks, it would be sitting in the middle of the memorial.
