On Friday, March 23, 2012, the West Street entrance to the Winter Garden will be closed until Spring 2013 as construction on the World Financial Center Pavilion continues.The pavilion will serve as the complex’s new front door, welcoming workers, visitors and residents as they emerge from (and enter into) the Fulton Street and World Trade Center Transit Hubs. The pavilion will be the western terminus of the highly anticipated east-west underground pedestrian passageway in Lower Manhattan that spans one-half mile.

The lobby-level east corridor connecting 2 World Financial Center with the Winter Garden will remain open throughout the renovation process.
Those traveling north-south and south-north within the complex who need to use the elevator will be able to access the elevator in 1 World Financial Center. The Winter Garden elevator will no longer be accessible.
