Today, it reopened for the first time in nearly 17 years.

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.
