The only remaining piece of the old World Trade Center site, destroyed in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, is coming back to life.
The old Cortland St. subway station, which was directly underneath the World Trade Center, will reopen in October, the New York Daily News reported.
The news that a remnant of the pre-9-11 world is coming back is a side note in a broader story of recovery: the number of private sector jobs in Lower Manhattan is back to where it was before the terrorist attacks, at 242,000 positions, Jessica Lappin of the Downtown Alliance, told the Daily News.
The Cortlandt St. station was crushed by the collapsing Twin Towers. New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority rebuilt the train tunnel and restored train service to lower Manhattan a year after the terror attacks. But the destroyed station itself remained shuttered.
