There is a ceiling shot in the first trailer of the dome (shown in "time elapse" with the clouds moving overhead). It is clearly the dome from the Grand Easton Station. If you go to it's location, you'll see there is an extensive network of unopenable doors (complete with doormen). You can also get ontop of the building and see that is infact the dome from the trailer. As mentioned above, you can't actually go inside, although many people assumed that you could based on the trailer footage.

Most people assume it was omitted from the game last minute or will available in DLC.

Add: There has to be a train track running through there, right? I wonder if the station can be accessed from below ground...

Actually the stained glass dome isn't from Grand Easton Station....if you go up on the roof of the building you'll see that there is no dome and none of the buildings seen through the dome are anywhere near Midtown Algonquin.

The glass dome is actually from the bank you rob in Chinatown. You can tell from the fact that you can see 40 Wall St. through the glass (in red). You can also see One New York Plaza from the glass as well (in green).

If you fly out and land on top of the bank you'll see the stained glass dome and the two skyscrapers as seen through it.

If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.

Well, excuse me. I stand corrected.

The glass dome in the trailer looks identical to the one in Grand Central.

I think there IS an inside to Grand Easton Station...

If you check this spot on the map, HERE, you'll find 2 large brown wooden doors. Above them it says, Grand Easton Station. If you stand right in front of them, and SLOWLY move the camera up or down, you can see a break between the top of the door, and the door way itself... it appears as if there is "light" coming from inside the building... the door seems to be it's own object, rather than just part of the building textured to look like a door...


I tried for a very long time to get in, but with no luck. HOWEVER, I did manage to find something yesterday that I think could help getting inside...

Yesterday, I was driving a Speedo (utility van), and while traveling at high speed, I hit something that caused me to be ejected from the windshield... I flew out of the vehicle, and hit a wall perpendicular to the direction i was traveling. The wall was maybe 6 feet high and 2 feet thick. After I hit the wall, and dropped to the ground, the van that I was driving, caught up to me and pinned me between the van and the wall I had just hit. When the animation of Niko getting back up to his feet happened, I got pushed straight through the wall and stood up on the other side...

I don't know if it is possible to recreate such a thing, in a specific place like this, but maybe worth a shot?
