World Trade Center (PATH Station) USA

World Trade Center is a terminal station on the PATH system. It is located in the World Trade Center complex, within the Financial District neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City. It is served by the Newark–World Trade Center line on weekdays and holiday weekends, as well as by the Hoboken–World Trade Center line on weekdays, and is the eastern terminus of both.

The World Trade Center station is located near the site of the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad (H&M)'s Hudson Terminal, which opened on July 19, 1909. In 1961, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey bought the bankrupt H&M system, rebranded it as PATH, and redeveloped Hudson Terminal as part of the World Trade Center. As part of the construction of the World Trade Center, Hudson Terminal was torn down, replaced with the World Trade Center station, and re-opened on July 6, 1971. Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, a temporary station opened in 2003 while the World Trade Center complex was being rebuilt. Work on a permanent station building commenced in 2008. 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 World Trade Center station has five tracks (three for Hoboken-bound trains, two for Newark-bound trains) and four platforms in the middle of a turning loop. Trains from New Jersey use the loop to turn around and head back to New Jersey. The platforms are located four floors below ground level. The floor immediately above the platforms is occupied by the station's fare mezzanine. The New York City Subway's WTC Cortlandt station is adjacent to and above the mezzanine.

The $4 billion Oculus station house, designed by Santiago Calatrava, consists of white ribs that interlock high above the ground. The interior of the station house contains two underground floors, which house part of the Westfield World Trade Center mall. The transportation hub connects the various modes of transportation in Lower Manhattan, from the Fulton Center in the east to the Battery Park City Ferry Terminal in the west, through the station house. The hub contains connections to various New York City Subway stations, including Chambers Street–World Trade Center/Park Place/Cortlandt Street on the 2, ​3​, A, ​C, ​E​, ​N, ​R, and ​W trains and WTC Cortlandt on the 1 train. It is the fifth-busiest transportation hub in the New York metropolitan area.

The Westfield World Trade Center mall is also within the Oculus building. The new station has received mixed reviews: although the hub has been praised for its design, it has also been criticized for its high costs and extended delays.

Hi Herbert, I reffer the picture of the woman walking on the right and the man in red on the left. Almost symetrical. Thanks

I assembled this picture from the ceiling construction of the PATH station. You can see the ceiling construction from below in the picture in which the young man looked at his cell phone. The ceiling structure can be photographed from the crossway that you see in the background of the picture (above).

Hi Herbert, I saw that you responded to my comment about this photo but I can't find what you wrote. To say the least, it's difficult to find comments people make. Anyway, I really enjoy your photos and the way you find symmetry in the architecture you photograph. I look forward to more of them. Regards, Andrew

Unfortunately, you are not directed to the photo you want to comment on. You have to look at the whole spot to find the right comment. You commented on my first version of the image (PATH station). And that was my answer: Herbert A. Franke December 1st, 2019 Dear Andrew, I beg your pardon for the late reply. I only read your comment today after I realized how to make the comment visible. I would like to thank you for your kind comment. Best regards, Herbert
