They tore up an entire block of lower Manhattan just to install a glass egg

 

Which was stupid. But what about the PA and wanting to build a now nearly $3 billion 'dove' at the WTC site? Surely the money could be better spent on other projects.

The first tempoary entrance that was at the WTC site was adequate, sure it might've been taking up space from one of the new towers, but even that would be suitible as the entrance for the Path station.

It's to let in natural light into the complex, and to offer "a beacon of hope" or w/e to New Yorkers when they see the glass egg....which is stupid because New Yorkers never look up and it's a waste of money.

 

Ideally if the costs did not 'magically' ballon out of control as it did or idiots miscalculating the costs by underestimating it [ie: costs were what was originally stated], maybe it might've worked.

Obviously it has not. The only way the MTA can get something out of it is to maybe sell the air rights and hope a developer comes and build something above it - maybe some hotel or residential space.
