After 12 years, numerous delays and a whopping $4 billion, the main transit hall of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub is finally about to open. The station, which will connect 11 subway lines, PATH trains and the Hudson Ferry Terminal, will welcome commuters beginning in the first week of March.
The building sits adjacent to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum and One World Trade. From the outside, the structure evokes both a dove in flight and a gleaming ribcage, with an interior that’s clean, bright and airy. A 330-foot-long operable skylight along the middle can open when weather permits, and floats a lofty 274 feet above the main floor at its apex. Take a tour through these photos.
