NYC Subway Station Destroyed On 9/11 Opens Nearly 17 Years Later

On September 11, 2001, the Cortlandt subway station in New York City was damaged by the attacks on the World Trade Center, which happened just above it. For 17 years after that, New Yorkers have slowly recovered from that traumatizing day, barely noticing the subway stop had all but disappeared. On Saturday, September 8, 2018, however, the MTA reopened the Cortlandt street station and things there are looking better than ever!

The station has been renamed "WTC Cortlandt," and now features several interesting art installations, a reduced number of columns to improve passenger flow, and (most excitingly) air conditioning to keep the station cool in the summer.





Though it's been a long time in the making, WTC Cortlandt was worth the wait!

Any New Yorker will tell you: air conditioning in subway stations is a serious game changer.

The art on display in the station also helps passengers remember the station's proximity to American history.

The 1 trains are already stopping at the station on their way to South Ferry!





Twitter users were thrilled at the newly-opened subway stop!!

Congrats on the re-opening, Cortlandt Street!

It's easy to assume things about history since we weren't actually there. We're taught to believe everything we read, but often times, it takes more research to figure out the truth.

There are a lot of historical figures we believe were bad based on what we first read or heard. However, upon further research, we find out they weren't actually that bad.

Some of them got a bad reputation even though all they did was make a mistake. Others just weren't appreciated for their ideas and inventions during their own time. Some of them are even heroes!

It seems Redditors did some of that extra research and are ready to share their findings.
