After almost two decades out of service, a New York City subway station destroyed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks has reopened.
The Cortlandt Street Station was completely buried under the rubble when the Twin Towers were hit in 2001. Located right next to the World Trade Center. Parts of the building were said to have torn through the terminal – pictures taken after the attack show the station buried under debris and its metal beams nearly bent in two.
On Sept. 8th before the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the first train in years entered the new, beautiful subway station.
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
