From the previous website:



Is it me or from this pic, when the tower is completed.. it will be almost unnoticeable from this angle which I assume is from the Liberty Island?
Or will the parapet allow it to become more prominent from this side?

I realize the monstrosity that is the size of the pic.. and I am sorry for that, but can someone please teach me how to resize linked pics? And I will do that.
Just wanted to make my observation more obvious xD.

No, the height cut and the lack of spires really makes it appear unremarkable sometimes/at certain angles.

The quality of the new trade center, the architecture of the transportation hub, the new church, and VSC, along the refurbishment of the west side highway and renovation of the Brookfiel Place is simply mindblowing.

Yes, but the entrance to the Transportation Hub is just absolutely horrendous.

Not everyone is going to share your opinion. How does that make you feel? Believe it or not, there are a lot of people who agree that the entrances to the Transportation Hub are ugly and underwhelming, especially for such a significant structure.

Yeah, I'm sure there's a huge group of you...I hope there's gonna be an Entrance March!

I don´t like how this forum, a place of opinion sharing is rather a place of pressure for the one and only right taste and opinion, instead of a place of sharing points of views, understanding each other and maybe, MAYBE enhancing each others horizone instead of killing off each opinion that doesn´t fir the "general opinion".

That's probably because we are humans, you know, we might be some sort of cosmic miscalculation. Just like animals who live with an awful misconception of being terribly smart.

While i am sure you are a great person,i would say there is a lack of enthusiasm in most of your posts.
Moreover,what do you expect when you use the word "horrendous"when,(imo)you should write "tremendous"!?...Did you at least see it in person?(very different!)
Nevermind!!i like you for writing years ago that you miss the Singer so much!
We both mourn a wonder we never saw..

I have been to the city and have seen the Transportation Hub in person. The Transportation Hub, itself, is fine, but the entrance is just lackluster and awkward with its horn jutting out over your head.

In my view the Transportation hub turned out to be such an overwhelmingly impressive structure, that I don't feel that the entrances take away anything from that overall stunning presence! After following the construction here for such a long time, it was just really special to walk into that place for the first time and enjoy the view from the staircase. And it seems to have become an instant, major tourist attraction :-)

You may not like or get irony, however don't be surprised if you get replies like mine when your approach is overly dramatic.
The entrances are that size because that is what the geometry of the oculus allows for at it's ends and they are in fact pretty similar in size to the ones on 42nd street leading to Grand Central, so hyperbolically describing them as 'absolutely horrendous' sounds like taking this a little too seriously to me. If you want a 'grand entrance' moment go through the Brookfield glass cube.
Nevertheless you - of course - have the right for your opinion and I have the right to joke about it.
Let us know when the March happens (hopefully not in this snow)

It is awesome how 3 and 4 interact so well together, and as a pair work greatly with 1 . Finally the complex is taking shape, and what a shape!!!
Shame we're still missing 2
PD: Looking this, I can see BIG's tower fitting well. Nonetheless, wish Foster's gets built

I was a little worried the cross bracing would be very lackluster after they scaled it back. But it still looks very prominent. Should be even better once they take down the elevators in front of it.

I still would've preferred the original design with the full cross bracing and spires. But this is turning out very nice.
