The WTC Cortlandt subway station in New York City closed down after it was destroyed on 9/11.
Today, it reopened for the first time in nearly 17 years.
The new WTC Cortlandt station on the 1 line is now open to the public. It’s fully accessible, has fewer columns for easier customer flow, and is also air-tempered to keep you cooler on hot days. pic.twitter.com/A5DaiBb06w— NYCT Subway (@NYCTSubway) September 8, 2018
According to the NYCT Subway, the station is fully accessible, has fewer columns to ensure better customer flow and is air-tempered.
The station has also become the home to a number of art installations and mosaics including a piece that features woven text from the U.S. Declaration of Independence and the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The name of the station references its location within the World Trade Centre site as well as its legacy under Cortlandt Street.
This $181 million upgrade is now fully accessible to the public.
