The northeast corner of the Oculus Plaza seems to finally be complete. Can anyone confirm?

It's really unfortunate all the negativity the Oculus has been getting since it opened.
I tried, but I just couldn't find it in my heart to feel bad for him. Instead, I'm irritated that he's contributing to the possibility of copycats and excessive guard railing. Couldn't he have found a less selfish place to attempt it?

...I understand you...
I was about to like your post when i realised how cynical it is.
We are the selfish ones:people don't commit suicide in a healthy community..

The mind is a complex thing. It's not one to say of someone who is suicidal and what they're capable of doing.

All the more, the guy was critically injured but I do believe he survived. That's all that matters. Hopefully he can find help so that it doesn't happen again.

Complete, but still roped off. Also, looks like they're getting ready to pave the area east of T2.

As it turns out, the blueprint for the WTC station renovation was literally drawn on the floor in red, for anyone curious about what it will look like. I made a rough sketch of the changes here (red=raze / blue=build):



From the (E) to the (R)(W)

That痴 awesome. Thanks for the info! Hopefully it actually happens around Christmas time. I知 glad they are restoring the free connection to OLP. That was unsure for a while.
