    Like the Eiffel Tower or the Sydney Opera House. What a couple of snoozers. No one goes to see them anymore. Just a couple of white elephants for Paris and Sydney to deal with.

    If the station is too fancy for its current links, then let's build some new links. It would be nice if we could run the PATH the last few miles to Newark Airport in slightly less than the decade or...

    In that same ten year period, the federal government spent $20 TRILLION on other things, most of it a complete waste. At least we got a nice train station out of this. The Republic will stand.

    The Port Authority claims to be working (sloooooowly) on a plan to extend the Path to Newark, which would make it a one-seat ride. As for the Air Train, there really is nothing I can say in its...

    I think you can retire the scare quotes, Zip. Calvatrava landed a giant armadillo in our midst. Why bother qualifying it? I personally think it's awesome, but I'm not going to deny its...

    Perhaps I'm a morbid person, but whenever I see it all I can think of someone jumping out a window from WTC 3 or 4 and impaling himself on those things. Maybe they can curve the ends downwards.

    Why does the terminal in the 2008 rendering on top look so much smaller than the ones from 2005? Is this showing the same floor? Have they lowered the roof? Or was the 2005 floor unrealistic? ...

    Agreed. It's a stupid idea in an otherwise excellent design. If costs need be cut, this would seem to be the place to cut them.

    They damn sure are if the "private" bridges, etc. are on PUBLIC land purchased with PUBLIC funds. I guess my annual real estate tax is just a fee for the use of the City's "private" land.

    This is an absolute lie, has been proven to be a lie many times (see, e.g., The Power Broker), and yet they continue to say it. Shameless.

    A lof pavement around that visitor's center. Really hadn't notice that before. The skateboarders should enjoy that. What is the box along West Street?
