    In retrospect, they should have swapped the locations of the Snohetta and Calatrava buildings.

    Ugh. There is so much wrong with this statement, I wouldn't know where to start. It makes me wonder how someone can obtain that position without basic understanding of economics.

    If I'm not mistaken, the South Bridge is the last remaining, still-in-use part of the old WTC complex. It somehow survived the falling towers (for the most part). It is the last reminder of the...

    I must respectfully disagree. Perhaps we could debate about whether this lovely new building has made the Cathedral Close 998x or 999x better than before, but 1000x better than before? Sir, that...

    Have you been there recently? They are tearing down lots of buildings, and building a new parking garage exactly where the terminal is now supposed to go. It's a giant construction site. I would...

    For God's sake, another Air Train? Why? Why? The current one is beyond useless. Why not just extend the subway a few blocks? Either line will do. Just pick the one with the fewer logistical...

    If we are going to spend $4B on an airport, can we at least bring back the beautiful old observation tower? The new giant tin can has got to go.

    There's not nearly as much space as in the old set up, which featured not only an observation deck, but a GIANT restaurant (WOW), a GIANT bar (Greatest Bar on earth), and even a GIANT ballroom. I...

    Every few years, someone circulates a pretty design to put a platform over the tunnel entrance and make it a nice park. But no one ever lifts a finger to move it past the pretty picture stage,...

    What's the hold-up on the retail? This thing has been open for a while now. There isn't even a newsstand in there. If I didn't know better, I would assume that the MTA is incompetent!

    Hmm. Where are those lovely gray ventilation buildings along West Street?

    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.

    I never cared for the restaurant. But its companion, the Greatest Bar on Earth, was really something special. What's replacing it is just an overblown snack stand.

    Agree. The design is quite elegant, by the way. I hope the reality actually looks like this. I was recently wondering how the Whitney trustees could have picked that monstrous design on the West...

    I agree that the white windows look bad (I otherwise like the building a lot). But let me offer a hypothesis (which others should shoot down if wrong). Though traditional-looking (or "faux...

    It's not nearly as bad as that new McSam Holiday Inn across the street. Too bad that's our standard for new architecture in the Financial District.
