  1. The news about the delay of opening the Fulton Center by 90 days isn’t really a big deal. Not mentioned in any of the stories on this topic is that none of the expected retail will be opening until later this year at the earliest, so it doesn’t much matter that the formal space isn’t yet open when there is no reason to go there other than to just get to your train (which you can already do). :-)
