Beautiful station, love the oculus and the spaciousness of the mezzanine. But why does the platform level have to look so...I don't know...tacky? Looks like it has been in use for decades already. Dirt, grime...for 2+ billion dollars I would have expected a bit more than grey tiles, fluorescent lighting, visible cables hanging from the ceiling and stairs (where are the escalators?).

Even when you remove the long waiting time, they are slower than the escalators' ground speed. And they make an extra safe/slow stop at the top, hesitating several times before finally opening the door. So not only was it cheaper than a real elevator, it is also less useful. It only has the neat factor going for it.

That was a good video tour. Mine came out dogshit quality I think because I recorded it in 480 YouTube selected it for extra compression which makes it look worse than it already was by far. I tried a couple different ways to upload it but it didn't matter. It's funny how high quality videos by popular users, where a quality downgrade through compression would be most noticable, are nearly broadcast quality where avg Joe user videos are shat on.

I love how they were legitimately excited about being the first train to Hudson Yards.

You should see how excited they get when they roll the holiday trains out.
