Has anybody seen the skylight open? I've been wondering how long it takes to completely open.

I think they may have meant how long it takes for the skylights to move into their open position.

I read once that this sculpture building was meant as a symbol of victory, resembling a dove taking flight. Yet, I also see a check mark, which is the symbol of the greek goddess of victory.

WTC Transportation Hub Oculus To Open In March
http://m.ny.curbed.com/archives/2015...n_in_march.php



Quote:
After over 10 years and about $4 billion, the World Trade Center Transportation Hub's Santiago Calatrava-designed Oculus is set to open in early March, Politico New York reported. The structure has been plagued by cost overruns, the price having just about doubled. The official World Trade Center website says it will deliver "unmatched mass transit," connecting 11 subway lines (A, C, E, J, Z, R, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5), the PATH system, several MTA bus routes, ferry service, and parking garages.

The report said that the new hub will serve 200,000 passengers, about a third of the 600,000 currently served by Penn Station. The temporary World Trade Center PATH station serves 44,000.

Cost overruns and other delays have not been easy on Calatrava. "I have been treated like a dog," he told the Wall Street Journal.

Not date was cited for the mall's opening, but it has been plagued by leaks. The new Eataly outpost, however, will open in the spring.
