New Fulton Center Subway Station Open for Business November 10 2014
"Welcome to New York's next great public space," said Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chairman Thomas Prendergast.
A decade after the 9/11 terrorist attack the rebuilt and improved $1.4 billion complex opened today at 5 a.m. to the public. The New York Times calls it the downtown's answer to Grand Central. Up to 300,000 passengers a day are expected to pass through Fulton Center. Senator Charles Schumer called the station at the opening ceremony "a metaphor for a revitalized downtown with 40,000 more residents than it had before."
Originally the opening was planed for 2007 at half of cost.
