The World Trade Center Transportation Hub Oculus – the iconic centerpiece of the sprawling transit facility – will partially open at 3 p.m. on March 3, providing an enhanced commuter experience for PATH riders traveling to and from Wall Street and other New York City destinations, as well as those who live in and visit the downtown area.

This spring, the Port Authority’s Board of Commissioners is planning an opening ceremony as the Oculus becomes fully operational, including the eastern linkages to the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s Fulton Street Transit Center and the 11 New York City subway lines that the MTA facility serves.

The March 3 opening will provide the 100,000 riders that use the PATH facility daily with below-ground, climate-controlled access to a new entrance at the corner of Liberty and Church streets, a few blocks from Wall Street. In subsequent weeks, the eastern entrance to the Oculus will open, providing PATH riders with direct access to Church Street and to the Fulton Street Transit Center. In late spring, the new access from the Oculus to the corner of Vesey and Church streets will open.

The transportation hub and Oculus – designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava – will serve as a 21st century, state-of-the-art transit center and represents the most integrated network of underground pedestrian connections to mass transit lines in New York City.

I don't understand how if there is no law on the books in either one of the 2 states you can be arrested and tried. Unless the PA itself is considered a city or something along those lines it doesn't seem like they can legally have legal recourse to enforceable regulations.

I will be truly grateful once we can put all of the criticism and anger behind us and truly enjoy the Hub as one of New York's great architectural treasures.

Also having followed construction for the past 10 years I know better than to criticize any building until it is 100% complete--and we are a long ways away from the Hub or the complex being 100% complete.

Why shouldn't we critisize? Even if the building is not complete, it doesn't mean some obviously needed stuff can be skipped?

I wrote before (and to Port Authority too - no reply from them): there is a big and growing population in Jersey City Paulus Hook. All of us could use either line to get to Exchange Place. But there is no schedule or at least a sign pointing to the next train leaving. Would it be hard to do? I doubt. Would it require someone in Port Authority to think about the passengers? You bet!
