:S.4 The temporary station had only one entrance, at Church Street, and disabled patrons needed to take four elevators to go from street level to platform level. , A few months later, on February 11, 2017, the first death inside the Oculus occurred.  A committee for Manhattan Community Board 1 called the station design "beautiful" in 2005. In 2013, the PANYNJ awarded a contract to rebuild the station. World Trade Center is a terminal station on the PATH system, within the World Trade Center complex in the Financial District of Manhattan, New York City. The northern mezzanine contains access to both platforms, while the southern mezzanine only connects to the southbound platform. , The southbound platform has two direct exits to the street.  Some of the additional cost and delay was due to additions and modifications to the original plan by the Port Authority. The main station house, the Oculus, opened on March 3, 2016, and the terminal was renamed the World Trade Center Transportation Hub, or "World Trade Center" for short. The Dey Street Concourse entrance into the Transportation Hub was closed until the Hub opened. The MTA projected that the work would be substantially complete by the end of December 2018. , Interior of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in August 2016, Photos of the original WTC bathtub from Liberty Street (1969), Looking northeast.  However, it had several limitations.  Especially because the current station has a ridership of only 46,000 daily passengers compared to 250,000 at Grand Central Terminal, the renovation is sometimes depicted as overpriced and overstylized. Although service on the Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line through the area was restored in 2002, the station's reconstruction was delayed until 2015 because the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey had to first rebuild the World Trade Center PATH station beneath it.  A new name, "WTC Cortlandt", was chosen for the station because of its location under World Trade Center, in addition to paying homage to its historic name of Cortlandt Street.  Station finishes were set to start during the second quarter of 2011,:50 and work began on the station mezzanine and platforms in September 2011. SUBWAYSTATS.  It retains the two-track, two-side-platform layout, and is 20 feet (6.1 m) below the ground level. Note: Service variations, station closures, and reroutes are not reflected here. , A 600-foot (180 m) pedestrian underpass under the West Side Highway, referred to as the West Concourse and formerly as the East-West Connector, links the WTC station mezzanine with Brookfield Place in Battery Park City, on the west side of the World Trade Center. Tab Content: Connections. The platforms are located four floors below ground level. The station is located under the intersection of Greenwich Street and Cortlandt Way within the World Trade Center.  The uptown PATH tubes, ferry routes, and NJ Transit lines across the Hudson River could not handle the displaced ridership on their own, and it was deemed necessary to rebuild the World Trade Center terminal. The station contains connections to the PATH at the World Trade Center station, as well as an out-of-system passageway to the Chambers Street–World Trade Center/Park Place/Cortlandt Street and Fulton Street subway complexes via the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. The Greenwich Street entrance to the new transit hub at the rebuilt World Trade Center site in downtown Manhattan.  In 1965 and 1966, the platforms were extended to accommodate ten-car trains. Subway, local and express station .  In April 2008, a third and final temporary entrance to the station was located at Vesey Street, facing Greenwich Street and adjacent to 7 World Trade Center.  Construction, maintenance, and management alone cost $635 million; the Port Authority awarded several subcontracts, most of them costly. One trunk would run via the new Lexington Avenue Line down Park Avenue, and the other trunk would run via the new Seventh Avenue Line up Broadway. After United Airlines Flight 175 hit the South Tower at 9:03 a.m., dispatchers ordered the closure of the Exchange Place and World Trade Center stations; the former was closed due to severe water damage.  The following day, the station indeed reopened with a ceremony. The old train station that was destroyed during the attacks on the twin towers of the World Trade Center on 11 September 2001 has now been replaced by a futuristic station that is the work of the illustrious Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. , The Transportation Hub has been described as either one of the world's most expensive train stations, or the world's single most expensive station, for its massive reconstruction cost of approximately $4 billion. :S.5 Other development projects to restart Lower Manhattan's economy were also proposed, and a new PATH terminal was seen as instrumental in making this happen. Market Center Station. :S.5, The station was also home to a StoryCorps booth, which opened in 2005.  When the station opened in 2016, the New York Post editorial board called the hub the "world's most obscenely overpriced commuter rail station — and possibly its ugliest", deeming the transit hub a "white elephant" and "monstrosity", comparing the Oculus to a "giant gray-white space insect". Kabak also said that "the PATH Hub is shaping up to be an example of design divorced from purpose. , Construction of the Oculus called for relocation of the World Trade Center cross in April 2006.  This artwork features words from several documents, including from the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and United States Declaration of Independence, embossed onto the station walls. Photos of the New Station Are Available Here.  On December 19, the direct underground link to the New York City Subway's World Trade Center station, at the northeast corner of the complex, reopened.  The new PATH station opened on July 6, 1971, west of the original terminal. PATH eastbound tunnel F can be seen in the center, penetrating the slurry wall on its way up Cortlandt Street to Hudson Terminal. The Dual Contracts promised the construction of several lines in Brooklyn. :59–60, By 1914, passenger volume at the Hudson Terminal had reached 30,535,500 annually. The first mezzanine level below ground also contains the Cortlandt Street–Greenwich Street station for the 1 train and a direct entrance to the northbound platform.  Calatrava was hired as the architect for this new, $2 billion design, and he revealed his plan in January 2004. The building itself would be located on its own block, bounded clockwise from the north by Fulton, Church, Dey, and Greenwich Streets. In a nod to the Libeskind concept, the Oculus was built to maximize the effect of the autumnal equinox rays (coinciding with the skylight opening on or around September 11 every year).  The station's renaming took place when the station reopened.  The station itself was not damaged, but it was covered by dust and was subsequently closed. By 2001, the volume of passengers using the WTC PATH station was approximately 25,000 daily. The station was connected to the World Trade Center towers via an underground concourse and a shopping center. Muschamp continued that the architect's vision "should satisfy those who believe that buildings planned for ground zero must aspire to a spiritual dimension. In order for the line to continue down Varick Street and West Broadway, these streets needed to be widened, and two new streets were built, the Seventh Avenue Extension and the Varick Street Extension.  An immediate result of the switch was the need to transfer using the 42nd Street Shuttle in order to retrace the original layout. According to an internal MTA document, train conductors are explicitly told to abbreviate the World Trade Center's name as "WTC" when making announcements for the station.  The plaza would have included a wedge whose lines showed the sun's rays at 8:46 a.m. and 10:28 a.m. on September 11 of each year.  However, even the original cost projections for the hub were high, as the original proposal was projected to cost almost $2 billion. , Following the 17th anniversary of the September 11 attacks in 2018, the rubber seal of the Oculus's skylight broke. , The station sustained minor damage during the 1993 World Trade Center bombing; a section of ceiling in the station collapsed and trapped dozens.  There were mosaic decorations by Squire J. Vickers or Herbert Dole depicting ships along each platform's wall. "World Trade Center" name signs are installed on the station's walls.  The new "H" system was implemented on August 1, 1918, joining the two halves of the Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line and sending all West Side trains south from Times Square. This included a new PATH terminal, the Fulton Center, the South Ferry/Whitehall Street terminal further downtown, and the reconstruction of the West Side Highway. Inaugural train arrives from Newark at PATH's temporary WTC station on November 23, 2003 at 2:08 p.m. After the World Trade Center collapse on September 11, the staircase still stood and became known as the Survivors' Staircase. , Groundbreaking on the World Trade Center took place in 1966. Stores near World Trade Center. It is served by the 1 train at all times. The completion of the "H" system doubled the capacity of the IRT system. Instead, two uptown services (Newark–33rd Street, red on the official PATH map; and Hoboken–33rd Street, blue on the map) and one intrastate New Jersey service (Hoboken–Journal Square, green on the map) were put into operation. , Prior to 9/11, the station's full-time entrance was located at the north end of the station at Vesey Street and West Broadway, where there was a turnstile bank and one full height turnstile. The system would be changed from looking like a "Z" system on a map to an "H" system. It’s the equivalent of having Grand Central, Times Square and Penn Station in one place.  The former temporary entrance was demolished later that year to make way for the Performing Arts Center. The first is an elevator and stair at Vesey Street at the platform's extreme north end, and the second is a pair of staircases to Cortlandt Way at the station's extreme south end. Trains magazine offers railroad news, railroad industry insight, commentary on today's freight railroads, passenger service (Amtrak), locomotive technology, railroad preservation and history, railfan opportunities (tourist railroads, fan trips), and great railroad photography. A temporary station was built, which opened on November 23, 2003. , New York City Subway station in Manhattan, New York City Subway station in Manhattan, New York. Station platforms on reopening day, facing north.  As part of the project, the East Bathtub was extended under the line to the eastern boundary of the site at Church Street. The station was built at the intersection of Cortlandt and Greenwich Streets, in a part of Lower Manhattan nicknamed "Radio Row" because of the many electronics dealers on the street. The slurry wall runs along the west side of Greenwich Street. :50 In the second quarter report for 2010, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey confirmed that excavation under the tunnel structure of the World Trade Center site was nearly complete, and that construction of the Cortlandt Street station would begin during the third quarter of 2010. :50 The Port Authority was set to complete underpinning and excavation under the tunnel structure by the second quarter of 2010, and start basic construction of the Cortlandt Street station during the 3rd quarter. , A connection to Brookfield Place opened on October 27, 2013, through a permanent passageway known as the West Concourse.  Within a week, the Port Authority was able to resume PATH service to the World Trade Center.  Red i-beam columns ran along the entire length of both platforms at regular intervals with every other column having the standard black station name plate in white lettering; the name plates alternated between "Cortlandt Street" and "World Trade Center". The truss serves as the mezzanine roof and also acts as a support for the northeast corner of the WTC Memorial.

It was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and composed of a train station with a large and open mezzanine under the National September 11 Memorial plaza.  On November 22, the last of 114 rafters was installed. In addition, the Dey Street Passageway along Dey Street connects the Transportation Hub east to the Fulton Center, providing access to the 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, E, J, N, R, W, and Z services.  There is also a direct access to the Chambers Street–World Trade Center/Park Place/Cortlandt Street station complex. Also by this date, one crane had been disassembled and painting of the hub continued. In 2009–2013, the Port Authority lost $2 billion in revenue by operating the PATH, equating to an almost $400-million loss in annual revenue if the Port Authority operates the PATH. The second Hoboken train arrived on track 3 at 8:52 a.m. and was ordered to be evacuated, employees included; the train never left the World Trade Center complex and was found during the 9/11 recovery process. "New entrances to the R & W Trains" The station was subsequently destroyed during the collapse of the World Trade Center.  The roof was originally designed to mechanically open to increase light and ventilation to the enclosed space. The station is located under the intersection of Greenwich Street and Cortlandt Way within the World Trade Center. , The World Trade Center Transportation Hub is the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey's formal name for the new PATH station and the associated transit and retail complex that opened on March 3, 2016.  Another $335 million was added to the cost overrun because the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey had to build around the New York City Subway's IRT Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line (carrying the 1 train), since the Metropolitan Transportation Authority refused to close the line for fear of inconveniencing commuters from Staten Island taking the Staten Island Ferry. Chambers Street–World Trade Center/Park Place/Cortlandt Street is a New York City Subway station complex on the IND Eighth Avenue Line, IRT Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line, and BMT Broadway Line.Located on Church Street between Chambers and Cortlandt Streets in Lower Manhattan, it is served by the: .

Hoboken ↔ World Trade Center. The west side of the platform was walled off at the time.  The temporary PATH station was designed by Port Authority chief architect Robert I. Davidson and constructed at a cost of $323 million.  During the September 11 attacks in 2001, a train operator reported an "explosion" to the MTA's Subway Control Center one minute after the first plane struck the World Trade Center's North Tower at 8:46 a.m. The frame of the South Tower is on the left.  On May 29, 2015, the same day the tower's observatory opened, the entrance to the observation deck opened. In 2014 dollars, the cost of the hub was estimated at $4 billion. The hours can be seen in the following video at the 0:52 mark on the door.  The inaugural train was the same one that had been used for the evacuation. The first Hoboken train turned around without stopping, not letting off passengers or opening any doors.  In 2001, just prior to the September 11 attacks, the Cortlandt Street station saw 19,446 riders per day. A connection to the Cortlandt Street–Church Street station's southbound platform, for the N, R, and W trains, is located at the far east end of the mezzanine, past the mall's shops. Connections. Subway service was halted shortly afterward, and as a result, no one in the subway system died. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey bought the bankrupt H&M system in 1961, rebranded it as PATH, and redeveloped Hudson Terminal as part of the World Trade Center. Select an option below to see step-by-step directions and to compare ticket prices and travel times in Rome2rio's travel planner. , Originally, the reconstruction was to be funded by the Federal Transit Administration, which gave approximately $1.9 billion to the project.  When the hub opened in March 2016, the director of the Port Authority, Pat Foye, declined to hold an event to celebrate the opening of the Hub, describing it as "symbol of excess" and noting he was "troubled with the huge cost" of the construction project.  On October 23, 2013, the West Concourse opened with access to the World Financial Center, now renamed the Brookfield Place. Two new train stations – the WTC Transportation Hub designed by Santiago Calatrava, and the MTA Fulton Transit Center make coming and going fast and convenient. World Trade Center Station. ... Calatrava and his partners said that the impact and utility of the Oculus would be diminished if it were shrunken further, that the temporary station did not meet requirements for circulation of air and pedestrians, and that columns would interrupt visitors' movement and provide a potential target for bombers. , The construction of this line, in conjunction with the construction of the Lexington Avenue Line, would change the operations of the IRT system. The concrete structure at top is a subway tunnel that includes the former location of the original station. Slurry wall with tie-backs can be seen on the left, and the frame of the North Tower in the background. One International Place, Boston, MA 02110.  Calatrava's design called for an above-ground station house (now the Oculus) with curved supports that extended outward, like wings. The $4 billion Oculus station house, designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, consists of white ribs that interlock high above the ground. " The Port Authority's chief engineer and others tried to convince him to temporarily shut down the line while the new transportation hub at the World Trade Center was under construction. The site was on land fill, with bedrock located 213 feet (65 m) below the surface. The World Trade Center station is near the site of the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad (H&M)'s Hudson Terminal, which opened in 1909.  A woman from New Jersey, Jenny Santos, fell to her death from an escalator.  However, Calatrava's original soaring spike design was scaled back because of security issues.  On March 3, 2016, the permanent PATH station building opened and the temporary entrance was closed. At 800,000 square feet, the hub consists of a train station, plaza and shopping mall that serves approximately 250,000 commuters each day and welcomes millions of visitors each year. The costs of the hub were still expensive, but it was to be finished at budget in 2009.  On the actual anniversary of the attacks, the skylight would open for 102 minutes to commemorate the duration between the time the first tower was hit and the collapse of the second tower. It is the fifth-busiest transportation hub in the New York metropolitan area. , A skylight would run the length of the station building.  A new method was used to construct a slurry wall to keep out water from the Hudson River.  Access to One World Trade Center from the West Concourse became possible for employees when the tower opened on November 3, 2014. There were also underground connections to the New York City Subway (A, C, and E trains at World Trade Center, and N, R, and W trains at Cortlandt Street–Church Street).  There is an out-of-system connection to the Fulton Center via the WTC Hub. Subwaystats is in no way affiliated with the MTA of New York.  In 2012, Hurricane Sandy damaged several hundred million dollars worth of materials. " Steve Cuozzo of the New York Post described the station in 2014 as it was being built as "a self-indulgent monstrosity" and "a hideous waste of public money".  The concourse itself opened on October 23, 2013. , Suggestions from independent engineers and architects that the Oculus be even smaller [were rebuffed.] , Cortlandt Street opened as the line was extended south to South Ferry from 34th Street–Penn Station on July 1, 1918, and was served by a shuttle. , As outlined in the reconstruction plan, the new terminal would be rebuilt in several stages. The loop included five tracks and 3 platforms (2 center island and one side) and was somewhat similar to the arrangement of the first and second World Trade Center stations.  The stairs were moved into the National September 11 Museum in July 2008.  The line reopened on September 15, 2002, with trains bypassing the site of the Cortlandt Street station. He stated that the staircases could not accommodate the number of passengers using the station during rush hours, and that any leaks caused the marble floors to become slippery.  However, in January 2017, an independent engineer for the MTA said that the station's reopening could potentially be pushed back due to disagreements with station contractor Judlau Contracting.  That entrance on Church Street was closed in April 2008 when the entrance was relocated once again. 975 feet (297 m) of tunnels and trackage, including 575 feet (175 m) of totally destroyed tunnels and tracks in the vicinity of the station site as it traversed Ground Zero, were entirely rebuilt.  The reconstruction of the station ultimately cost $181 million, up from earlier projections of $158 million and $101 million.  Eight days later, the Fulton Center and Dey Street Concourse opened to the public. , The Transportation Hub is designed to connect the PATH subway system to the New York City Subway system.  On November 3, One World Trade Center opened, as did the PATH entrance from that building. He congratulated the Port Authority for hiring Calatrava, and predicted that the new station would be able to impact the city's future. The contracts were "dual" in that they were signed between the City and two separate private companies (the Interborough Rapid Transit Company and the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company), all working together to make the construction of the Dual Contracts possible.  Following its reopening and the resumption of Newark–World Trade Center and Hoboken–World Trade Center services, the station quickly reclaimed its status as the busiest station in the PATH system.  The passageway reopened to provide an ADA-connection from the temporary PATH station to the New York City Subway station, but was closed again when the temporary PATH station closed for a reconstruction. A fourth train was sent to the station at 9:10 a.m. to pick up a dozen PATH employees and a homeless individual, leaving the station empty. The doors and original ADA-accessible ramp, as well as the structure from the first World Trade Center leading into the station, survived the September 11 attacks. , The station was closed on September 11, 2001, after American Airlines Flight 11 hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m..  In late 1961, Port Authority executive director Austin J. Tobin proposed shifting the project to Hudson Terminal and taking over the H&M in exchange for New Jersey's agreement. , Soon after the attacks, two options were considered: either the existing line would be repaired, or the tunnel would be diverted westward just to the north of the World Trade Center site before heading to a new terminal at South Ferry. , The Oculus's $542 million construction contract was awarded to Skanska in summer 2010. It is served by the 1 train at all times.  The old tiling and mosaics were removed and replaced with the 1970s-style varnished, tan-colored brick tiles. , PATH service to Lower Manhattan was restored when a temporary station opened on November 23, 2003. These sections of the station were retained in the temporary station, and remained in the new station.  While the construction of the World Trade Center neared completion, a temporary corridor was provided to take passengers between the station and a temporary entrance on Church Street. This station served as the terminus for the Newark-World Trade Center and Hoboken-World Trade Center routes until it was destroyed during the September 11, 2001 attacks. The high cost for a single station is attributed to the extravagant design, which stems from the Port Authority needing to convince the government of New Jersey to pay for a project situated entirely in New York. , After the September 11 attacks, officials proposed a $7 billion redesign of transit in Lower Manhattan.
