NYC subway station lights the way for 300,000 riders a day

The Metropolitan Transit Authority’s new Fulton Center transit station must seem like a miracle to the 300,000 subway riders who trod its polished granite floors every workday. Instead of the usual stultifying dankness of the city’s 421 other subway stops, Fulton Center offers even the most jaded New Yorker that rarest of gifts: sunlight, glorious sunlight! Thanks to a 120-foot-high oculus, the station overflows with natural light during the day; at night, weather permitting, you can look up and catch a glimpse of the galaxies. What a treat!
