The Journey is as Important as the Destination…

…and for the City That Never Sleeps this has never been truer than with the opening of the spectacular, new Fulton Center Station at Fulton Street and Broadway.  Not content with a simple transit hub, the city’s MTA, the local agency with oversight of the project, has unveiled a glass and steel marvel, the centerpiece of which is the Sky Reflector Net.

Built by Arup, James Carpenter Design Associates and Grimshaw Architects, the Sky Reflector is an eight-story dome comprised of glass prisms designed to refocus natural sunlight and illuminate the station.  How impressive is it ?  New Yorkers who have already used the station did the unthinkable…

They looked up.  And marveled.
