Someone Snuck Into NYC's $4 Billion Train Station And Took These Pics

Illustration for article titled Someone Snuck Into NYC's $4 Billion Train Station And Took These Pics

Picture $4 billion worth of cash stacked up in the shape of a train station. This is pretty much what the World Trade Center Transportation Hub looks like. Except more surreal. You'd also maybe need to throw in a whole bunch of screw ups and missed deadlines, because this alien cathedral of a train station is one expensive mess.

Aymann Ismail recently snuck into the never-ending construction project and snapped some of the first ever images of the inside for Animal New York. It looks very cool—though now that the WTC Transportation Hub is expected to cost more than the tower itself, the Santiago Calatrava-designed train station better get a lot cooler. Click through to Animal New York for more images.

I have to ask...in this day and age of paranoia, how the hell does someone get away with this? He's trespassed on, presumably, a construction zone. Once would assume that he had to climb over/around all kinds of stuff to get in there. He then publishes the photos with his name on it...and he doesn't get in deep brown applesauce how?

I know not the point of the article, and the pics are great...but if I posted pictures of myself B and E into someone's house, you can rest assured I'd get in trouble for it.
