Thread: Progress of Temporary PATH Station in WTC 'Tub'

    Default Progress of PATH station in WTC "tub"

    Hey NYguy, in how many years is the site supposed to look like your last posted picture? And is that entire thing the temporary path station? It sure looks big for something temporary.

    Should be open by the end of the year. *This, and the 1/9 station, and all the damage to the transit system from 9/11 will be repaired.

    Default Progress of PATH station in WTC "tub"

    An article ran in the NY Times on May 15 concerning the tempy PATH station. It is archived for sale on the Times site, but I found it here.

    From the article:
    It will also house the single work of art in the station: a 118-by-13-foot mosaic mural designed by Giulio Candussio of the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli in Spilimbergo, Italy, northeast of Venice, where it is being fabricated. The mural is a gift from the regional government of Friuli-Venezia Giulia.

    Titled "Iridescent Lightning," it is composed of a gigantic jagged bolt running the length of the wall, varying in color from fiery bursts of red and orange to cooler strands of green and blue. Full of peaks and valleys, it is meant to capture the energy and continuity of life.

    What did the old concourse look like? To tell you the truth, I've never seen photos.

    Is the 'temporary' PATH station going to be merged with the new "grand" terminal? The canopy that they are showing in the newly released plans looks more permanent than temporary.

    :idea: Since I live in Rockland County, I have no need to ever ride this train, but when it opens I'll be going back and forth a few times just to be there. WHO'S WITH ME????????

    After it's open for awhile and the hype dies down, I plan to take the ferry to JC and the PATH back. I'm sure it will be an emotional experience.

    I was just down there a week or two ago and the signals for the PATH are operational, and according to someone from Sub talk a couple days ago they ran a train for the First time from NJ through the tunnels to the World Trade Center and back about three times in a short period of time.

    PATH Train Makes Test Run At World Trade Center Site
    NY1 News
    OCTOBER 23RD, 2003

    The Port Authority made a test run of a PATH train Wednesday, an important step in restoring train service at the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan.
    Although the train was only going five miles an hour and only the crew was onboard, PA officials deemed the trial run a success.
    Since repairs began in March 2002, workers have put down more than 11,000 feet of new track.
    When service resumes in late November, some 67,000 commuters are expected to use the World Trade Center stop every day.

    I saw that on the news yesterday. It was really strange, to say the least, to see a train running under the 7 floor original remnants... really, really strange.
