I love how it looks at night. The lights make it feel very warm.

So happy to see the temporary PATH station is finally coming down. It's been a long time coming!

So sad, it was rather nice in its own way.

That first photograph doesn't look too recent. The connection from the Oculus to the upper level of the West Concourse has been open for a while now, yet still appears to be under construction here.

I'm sure this may have been answered before but does anyone know why they didn't finish Fulton through to Church? It's a bit odd to me how the wouldn't just finish hat section of the streets off it looks ridiculous.

A baby was delivered inside the Oculus yesterday. Congrats to the mother.

I've wondered the same thing. I don't understand why they just stopped working on that section. That hole in the ground is starting to annoy me.

Does anyone know if they'll wait until the temporary PATH is completely demolished before the work on connecting Greenwich to Vesey?

The PATH Entrance is in the way of Greenwich Street, so yes, but that probably won't be paved till a few months before the ROPPACWTC opens

Looking good.

There's definitely progress.

Now we just need to turn on the lights.

Follow me. the center part will have a different kind of scaffolding, possibly something to do with those big square frames they have stacked up. I wonder if those are supposed to be attached to the sides of the transition segments and they have these little platforms arranged at an angle to hang right where the rafters attach. We'll see soon I hope.

It seems the occulus has little connection to train travel. It appears to be merely a place to walk through on the way to the real station below or a place to shop/look at the nice interior. A questionably expensive entrance, even though it looks great.
