Hudson yards is the superior location, close to midtown and penn station.

Everyone knows who Justin Bieber is. That doesn't make him prestigious.

That's true, though on the other hand everybody except for teenage girls hates Bieber, however only islamic terrorists hate the WTC.

Transport connections are better meaning shorter commutes to HY from most suburbs compared to the WTC which is removed from commuter rail. Appears no contest to me, combined with a new park vs a memorial. I know which place I'd rather work in.

The WTC has it's own PATH Station and is near the heart of downtown... so it can compete

Why bash? It is common knowledge that path has nothing on penn stations capacity to bring people into the city. Hudson yards is a few blocks away from the busiest station in the USA. In some years, penn station will welcome commuters from westchester also. Path is only two short subway lines in jersey. I think I know which location is more accessible for the most people and requires less commute time for people all over the metro.

It can compete, but midtown is still more desirable a location so I feel Hudson yards has superior advantages. Also, it is being developed ad the next rock center versus a somber memorial at the WTC, which would you rather? Don't forget high line access and HY looks to be on another level.

WTC will not be somber. The two pools and the museum? Yes. Otherwise, it's a park with four supertalls full of office workers, a world-class mall, a world-class transit hub, AND it will be across the street from the "under renovation" World Financial Center's office buildings and retail. Make no mistake: the World Trade Center and its vicinity will be one of the more bustling areas of our great city.

Did I say the WTC would be somber? No, I said the memorial would be. . It is true imo that the park element at the HY would be more inviting for office workers than the smaller park being built next to the memorial. Anyway this is my opinion about which location is most desirable, it is of course open to debate.

I know I would rather work in the WTC. I much prefer Lower Manhattan to Midtown. I don't know why. It's just so much more intriguing and I love the layout. Midtown doesn't have that "X Factor" that Lower Manhattan does. Is it just me?

I also much prefer Wall Street to Midtown. However, Midtown is more convenient for commuters.

Nope, it's not just you, I like downtown more too. To me it seems more inviting, more open than midtown

Nope. Downtown is not more open than midtown, it is more clostophobic with narrow canyons. The narrow streets around wall street can be charming. but certainly not more open than midtown.

Midtown is also more inviting I think. Downtown struck me as rather lacking in that aspect with too many boring stores and a lack of color. Of couse I'm talking about the financial district which makes sense given its role. It is supposed to be conservative and straight laced.

That mall isn't my idea of world class either. The hudson yards mall will be nicer for sure.

The arcade at the WFC (across from the WTC) is being expanded and completely overhauled. Supposedly, it will be very high-end. The same is planned for the massive amount of sq feet of shopping being planned at the WTC.
