In December, we got our first glimpse of the giant skylight inside the massive, glass-walled, "spectacular," Fulton Street Transit Center--the under construction transportation hub downtown which will connect 10 subway lines and feature 70,000 square feet of shops, restaurants and office space.
Then in February we saw some mesmerizing renderings of the Center including one which showed, as DNAinfo described, a "pedestrian passageway beneath Dey Street, opening in November, which will have a mirrored wall that will show hazy reflections of the shapes and colors of everyone who walks past it."
And today, we're happy to report the MTA has released new photos from the construction, showing the Center slowly but surely taking shape. Take a look below at the new photos, which show winding staircases and a more progress on the skylight, also called the "oculus."
Scheduled to open in June of 2014, the Center will be just a few blocks away from the new One World Trade Center (which in a few weeks will surpass the Empire State building as the city's tallest) and the 9/11 memorial.
