Do you still have to reserve ahead of time to walk in the memorial/plaza? I'm going to be visiting for the first time on the 24th!

Yes you do.

I think the system will continue until at least 1 WTC is finished and construction finishes up on that side of the memorial.

After a quick reinstatement of the original cams we all came to know and love, Earthcam switched many of its cameras around a few weeks ago, so now I can't watch the Oculus's construction. I also watch the WTC7 camera operated by Erdman Video Systems but that view has been permanently blurry for well over a week now. Does anyone know of other cameras I could use?

Imagine what this will look like 10-15 years from now with the trees being much larger and with snow on the ground.

Also I see tire tracks leading into the VSC, so I guess it is traversable now.

WTC PATH hub delayed another 18 months

By Benjamin Kabak

Quote:
The saga of Santiago Calatrava’s World Trade Center PATH hub is a familiar one to long-time readers. What once started out as a $2 billion project expected to take four years to build has stretched every onward and upward to become a $3.8 billion, six-year undertaking. It’s long been unclear exactly what is driving the costs and the timeline issues, but Hurricane Sandy, ostensibly, did not help.

In an interview in The Times today, Cheryl McKissack Daniel, president of McKissack & McKissack, spoke about the PATH hub. Her words were not optimistic:


Q. You’re also working on the World Trade Center transportation hub.

A. There’s another long one!

The World Trade Center started out being about 48 months and quickly grew to about six years. And now, after Sandy, that added another year and a half to the whole project. Everything was flooded — everything was new and flooded. And all of that had to be replaced because it’s all electrical work. We are part of a large team with Turner and Tishman to provide construction management services and it’s really more on the consulting side for the Port Authority.


Vivian Marino, the Times interviewer here, was handed a gift horse and decided to turn it down. It’s a Very Big Deal that Sandy and the subsequent damage added another 18 months to this project, and logical follow-up concerns costs. The Port Authority has, so far, been mum on anything relating to this project and its projected spend.

Meanwhile, I’ve heard from a few sources that Sandy isn’t the only factor behind this delay. These sources claim that Santiago Calatrava’s influence (and meddling) have led to some redesigns and cost increases. Additionally, others have questioned Downtown Design Partnership’s ability to manage public perception and the behind-the-scenes timeline.

@SecondAveSagas @drosejr Info provided by Ms. Daniel is wrong. The anticipated completion date of the WTC Transportation Hub remains 2015.

In the past WTC Progress has been incorrect about the status of their own building when members of this site have asked them about it, so I'll take a wait and see approach with this.

At $3.8 billion and potentially rising still, the hub is already reaching the estimated price of the new Tappan Zee Bridge's cost of $4 billion.

Not saying it's this, but it does come to mind.
