I completely agree and I'm actually very confused by this. I mean, the old concourses and plaza had signage everywhere. The signage in the Oculus is scarce and confusing as hell. Granted there is no where to hang signs in the the main hall but the PATH hall could AT LEAST have proper signs directing you. It's not that hard. You're right, they just do not care.

Hey, what is the deal with Earthcam? Most of the views are offline now for over a week. Have they deactivated them (GOD, I HOPE not).

4 billion well spent?

Port Authority says nearby construction caused Oculus leak

Quote:
[...]
Water pooled onto the marble floors of the Oculus during a drenching downpour that swamped the city Friday, with liquid appearing to rain down from above.
[...]
the roof is fine, the Port Authority insisted Saturday — instead pinning the blame on nearby construction which left corridors on the edges of the Oculus vulnerable to flooding.

Much of the rainwater barreled through 3 World Trade Center, a still unfinished Larry Silverstein-owned tower south of the Oculus, the Port Authority said.
[...]
But a Silverstein spokesman threw cold water on the Port Authority’s theory, and said the developer’s lower Manhattan skyscraper suffered no water damage.

“Anyone who suggests that the water leaking into the Oculus somehow originated at 3 World Trade Center . . . is all wet,” said Silverstein spokesman Bud Perrone. “All of the areas impacted by rainwater are parts of the Hub project, built and operated by the Port Authority.”
[...]
The flooding was so bad, parts of the eastern mezzanine were shuttered Friday afternoon, with buckets and water vacuums at the ready.
[...]
And Bushwick resident Chris Toscano, 29, said it “felt like it was literally raining indoors.”

Yes, 4 billion well spent. The alternative is an architecturally null and depressing place like Penn Station.

Why is that? Is it because of the disagreement over the PAC?

It appears as though they are almost done with the C1M Level E Connection. I also wonder when they might open the 2 R & W entrances. They must be mostly done. They have been sitting there for almost a year.
