Anyway, the building looks great (a photographers delight), be it better from the inside than from the outside.

...It is a fact since WWII NY and LA/SF are the epicenter of the worldwide culture.
Really sorry if it makes you sad!
I'm done with you as it does not seem you think before you speak/write.

Is there any plan to put that on NY metro system ?

Hopefully not! They do provide safety as intended, but the door alignment would have to be so perfect for them to work. On the NYC Subway, the train door arrangements and placement are completely different. Platform Screen Doors would require scrapping every train and buying all new ones of the exact same design. Also, the trains rock back and forth when entering a number of subway stations in New York, posing a risk that the train would hit the doors.

But the PATH uses a uniform design , so there is no excuse not to do it...

Please,don't care about America's reputation: i guess it's pretty good as all over the world aliens wears the American flag on American apparels.
I travel a lot with my parents and i am always delighted to see the propagation and the influence of our culture.People love America.
Don't care about us and try to focus on your right place in Europe.
We are not your colony anymore
I'm done with you.
Please let me apologize for this jerk that is my fellow countryman. Not all Americans are so naive and rude.

Three revolving doors at the entrance to WTC4 - is really stupid decision
Fully opened doors+air thermo blanket could work way too effective along the people traffic around 8:00-9:00 and 16:00-18:00 MT

What exactly has started this conversation? Also, a good indication of the American flag's presence in the hub is entirely symbolic to the location and progress made.

The word "addiction" is just unbearable as it refers to something eminently negative(mostly drugs)

Because state worship is obligatory in post 9/11 America.

Man that view upwards is just so beautiful. In a couple years everyone will forget about the price, and enjoy this new monument and station.

Can I just say .... Wow!

The "look everywhere" to be grasped by architectural elements throughout the whole hub is just amazing.

Surely a go to destination on my bucket list for the next trip to New York!

White signage is a horrible choice for this building even gray would've been better.

So in your great wisdom.. no one should be proud of their country and flag.. not even when it is symbolically placed there to show this country's resolve in the face of the single worst terrorist attack in the world!

Funny.. when I watch a futbal match with the Mexican National team.. I'm pretty sure all I see in the stands are the fans covered in Green, white and Red, flying their Flag with Pride.. but that's ok, i guess!


I for one would've placed an even larger Old Glory in the transit Hall!

It looks like those signs are temporary.

No. He's saying we go overboard and put the flag on everything. Not that it's never ok to show the flag.

That's because they were supporting their national team at a big soccer game and not in a transit hub.

That is beyond obnoxious.


Anyway, I kind of hope they remove the flag only because it clashes with the pristine white feel of the place, but since it's part of the larger WTC site which holds national significance, I can understand they they put it up.
