Since the last check-in on the World Trade Center Transportation Hub, the long-overdue project has sprouted wings. Yes, those white dohickies protruding from the "flying bird" are currently being installed. According to the the WTC Progress Facebook page, all the rafters for the oculus should be in place by August, and welding will come after, and the hub set to open next year. (Don't make any bets.) When all's said and done, it will look like this flying bird, but who feels like a porcupine or stegasaurus vibe is more palpable right now? So iles to go, but at least there's progress, which helps everyone forget that the $4B project is delayed and over-budget.
