World Trade Center Redevelopment Watch

The long-awaited World Trade Center transportation hub, designed by Santiago Calatrava to look like a bird in flight, is set to open this year. Right on the heels of a first glimpse inside the stegosaurus-like construction site, the Observer dares to ask: "Why Is Calatrava's $4 Billion World Trade Center PATH Station Covered in Rust?" Never fear, New Yorkers, because the final product will be as snow-white as the renderings: "Once all of the welding is done, the steel will be blasted, cleaned and the appropriate corrosion protection system and paint will be applied." Well, whew, because after $4B the thing shouldn't look dirty. [NYO; previously]
