World Trade Centre - Station

The feel inside this place is amazing. They have done a superb job of rebuilding.

Re: World Trade Centre - Station

Its wonderful to see it as the designer intended; unlike our own major terminii that have been filled in and floors added to create a "shopping experience" but have instead created a mess rather than a visual experience as they were intended.

Re: World Trade Centre - Station

The shops are there (it is America after all) but they are all around the sides and don't spoil the feeling of the place.

What an amazing construction. It looks really impressive, nicely shot wornish.

Really appreciate the photo Dave. A great Cathedral to Rail which the Yanks do very well. eg Grand Central. I think we have similar stuff, albeit rather older. But have any of you seen the transformation to London Bridge Station in London? Whoa.

Re: World Trade Centre - Station

Next time I am there and not being rushed for a connection I will take some. Assume you remember what a rat-run it was.? Actually it's one of those places that make you think that some of the Infrastructure investment made in the UK is excellent.

Re: World Trade Centre - Station

Its a bit of a pain at the moment getting from the suburban platforms to the underground (via the roadway by the Shard) or to the walkway across the Thames. The former will no doubt get better as they finish the work but I can't see a way of re-instating the side exit to the walkway as all the platform exits now go down to the new main concourse.

Agreed but the sense of space is amazing, (compared to the collections of rat runs it was). And I think the Underground access is now operating.
