Photo by myself at Dey and Church Streets, downtown.
Closer up to the Freedom Tower, is the delicate white spines of the new transpiration hub by Santiago Calatrava.
The new 4-billion dollar station will soon open, serving as the Path Station for commuters from New Jersey. The project is about two months behind schedule and 2-billion dollars over budget (!) The structure has been criticized heavily by the press.
The space below the sculpture is not open to the public yet.
By the way, La Guardia airport is scheduled to completely rebuilt soon, with some of its airstrips lengthened. (Completely means being demolished to the ground). The cost of that renovation? Also 4-billion dollars. Hm.
A few steps away, you can get a better sense of the overall shape.
