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!

After we've watched a movie, it can be difficult to imagine the film as a project that took months or years to finally culminate into the product we see at the theater or on our television.
