It will. Sadly, once T2 is built, it will be sandwiched between two large buildings, and its best views obscured.

Has anybody heard if there will be access to the Dey St. passageway when the Oculus opens next month? E train access? Related to the opening, there is still scaffolding to the ceiling at the T2 entrance, and it doesnt look like any work has been taking place there. Wonder if that will open next month.

Supposedly everything except the side entrances and the third platform will open in March, MINUS THE RETAIL. The tenants are still fitting out their spaces so the retail stores won't operate for many months.

It still looks like there is an awful lot of interior work to do before it opens! Any bets on it being delayed again?

I would bet that they'll only open the western half of the oculus, with the connection to the liberty street entrance which is almost done and maybe the one @ Vesey too. Obviously we are only talking about the concourse level, mezzanine has a long way to go IMHO
