If they had made a transparent or translucent floor you could have brought light down to the platforms, but I suppose the costs of that would have been over the top.

All in all, a half-measure that only sort of solves the problem. NY still won't have that station that will knock people's socks off like a London St. Pancras, or Berlin's main station, etc, etc,. The tracks are still dark and dingy underground without light. There is no great train shed like those of Europe and no light getting down to the tracks. Sad but True. Much of the new station is reserved for corporate offices and shops. Again, a lack of focus on the actual RAIL issue. MSG needs to gtfo so that NY can fix the whole thing properly and open up the tracks to the light.

yeah, but copper glazing!
