Fulton Street Transit Center

2011_12_fstc1

I've been fascinated by the short, slanted tower rising at the corner of Broadway and Fulton Street. It's part of the massive Fulton Street Transit Center project, which has gotten less press than the WTC reconstruction a couple of blocks west. But to many New Yorkers, the FSTC is going to be the more significant project, as it will allow them to transit daily between eleven subway lines- all the way from the 2/3 at the eastern end of Fulton down to the R at the western edge- and beyond to the as-yet-unbuilt PATH train terminal. These three pictures show the centerpiece of the project, a large glass terminal building with a unique oculus, which is designed to send natural light down deep underground. Completion is currently set for 2014- and you can see a full set of pictures at Gothamist.
