That on the left is Danny from Discovery's Extreme Engineering. Maybe they're making a show about the construction of the Fulton Center.

...or just a look-a-like? It would be great, though, to see the Fulton Street Transit Center showcased in an Extreme Engineering episode.

It's him. He posted a picture with this comment on Instagram:

I got to host the ribbon cutting of the Fulton Center Transit Hub today. Super beautiful building. By 5:00am tomorrow it'll become a permanent new addition to NYC transportation infrastructure.

Okay

Though actually we do have some out-of-system fareless transfers programmed into the Metrocard despite the lack of exit swipe. The transfer between the F at Lexington-63rd and the 4/5/6/N/Q/R at Lexington-59th is the only one currently active, though there used to be another one at Court Square before the recent renovation completed (and connected all of the lines there inside fare control). I'm not sure how it works, but the decision was made not to allow such a fareless transfer between Fulton St and Cortlandt St, possibly because the routes are mostly redundant with one another in the area.

Why are there metal arches above each ticketing alley?

I want to see all the cielings of the NY stations covered with a false new cieling so that old wires, tubes, pipes, etc are not visible.

I came on this thread to have a look to see if the Subway had improved since I last visited NYC, as I'll be in NYC again next week.

I'm disappointed really. Is Fulton Center the best effort? It's a good design as a building, but signage is horrendous, and as others have pointed out - the metal arches over the ticket gates? Is it not time for a better ticket gate design?

Yes. Turnstiles are also annoying for anyone with luggage, large items or dare I say overweight.. Possibly I'm just too used to this style:

I don't why they haven't changed their design.... Boston , PATH , PATCO , DC have all made it easier for luggage either with a new design or wider turnstile... Hopefully when they switch over to the Smartcard system they will change the Turnstile..

My guess is that they house all of the electrical components between all of the turnstiles. Having never seen earlier turnstiles, I presume that when they were token operated they didn't need the electrical components as everything was mechanical. Given the number of entrances it's probably faster to have the wiring externally rather than connecting them through the floor. Insert the number of turnstiles that will fit within the space allotted and put in the fencing for the difference if needed.
