    I feel the same way, except instead of a glass dome, I figure a beaux-arts building in the fashion of GCT or Hoboken Terminal would have been cheaper too.

    Almost anything would be cheaper. I love a lot of Calatrava work but the pragmatist in me just thinks the wings are almost ostentatiously pointless.

    The above ground assembly of the structure is probably the least satisfying, most confusing, ugly and plodding slow construction in the city. I barely want to look at the site for about 2 years until it reaches completion.

    Not to mention it looks like it's got a bad case of vagina dentata.

    So all of that is just above the temp ceiling in the current path station, huh?

    If that's your thing, who are we to argue?

    It's beginning to look more and more like an abstraction of Guimard's Paris Metro entrances.
