10 Remnants of the Original World Trade Center Still on Site in NYC | On Untapped Cities
In local NYC Transit WTC news
Officer Janno Lieber, and NYC Transit President Andy Byford were on hand on Saturday to cut the ribbon for the official opening. Service started at noon, with the first 1 train pulling in to cheering crowds.
The air-tempered station is ADA accessible and features other amenities and upgrades, including Help Point kiosks on each platform and on the two station mezzanines.

“The opening of WTC Cortlandt returns a subway station to a vibrant neighborhood and represents a major milestone in the recovery and growth of downtown Manhattan,” said MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota. “WTC Cortlandt is more than a new subway station. It is symbolic of New Yorkers’ resolve in restoring and substantially improving the entire World Trade Center site.”
“We are excited to bring the 1 line back to World Trade Center with the new WTC Cortlandt station,” said Hakim. “Lower Manhattan is attracting families and businesses who want to put their roots down here, and we are so happy to be part of the fabric of a vibrant community that continues to inspire us all.”
“When I got to the MTA a year ago, I made it a priority to get this station back in service,” said Lieber. “I’m thrilled our team has been able to deliver. As this project shows, the MTA is changing how we manage major projects, so we can give New Yorkers better mass transit facilities faster and at lower cost.”
“The successful construction of the WTC Cortlandt station in the city’s most challenging building site represents our ability to deliver on our promises to modernize and rejuvenate the subway system,” said Byford.
Prior to construction of the new station, the MTA rebuilt 1,200 feet of tunnel and tracks and made significant repairs to the station shell, track tunnels and track infrastructure. This enabled the rapid restoration of 1 line service to the South Ferry terminal while reconstruction continued. The remainder of the old Cortlandt St station was demolished as part of the overall reconstruction of the World Trade Center site.
The station as it appears at the opening.
The construction of the WTC Cortlandt station began in 2015 when the MTA was given control of the site, which is located within the greater World Trade Center site overseen by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. A partnership of several agencies, including the MTA and PANYNJ, worked on the design of the new station.
Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton said the opening represents “another key milestone in the evolution of the WTC campus as a dynamic anchor of the Lower Manhattan community,” noting the cooperation between the two authorities to keep the 1 line running during construction.
Detail from CHORUS, the art installation on the walls of the station.
The station features a white marble mosaic spanning the walls of both platforms. Commissioned by MTA Arts & Design and created by the renowned multimedia artist Ann Hamilton, the installation titled “CHORUS” includes small marble pieces – or tesserae – that spell out text from the Declaration of Independence and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The surface invites customers to touch the text as they read the words.
About 3,000 people died and 6,000 were injured as a direct result of attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, when three hijacked passenger airliners to hit the twin towers and the Pentagon. An attempt upon Washington, D.C., was thwarted when the passengers aboard a fourth hijacked aircraft fought with their captors. That plane crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
