The steel ribs arching over New York City’s newest transit station have already become a familiar sight for the city’s residents and tourists. Now, after seven years of delays, the striking new World Trade Center Transportation Hub will finally open this month in Lower Manhattan.
We finally have our first look at the World Trade Center’s skyscraper, thanks to a Wired exclusive today. But wasn’t this building already unveiled years ago? And wasn’t it designed by someone else? Wasn’t it under construction?
Beautiful. Breathtaking. Tragic. Saddening. Historic. The new One World Trade Center’s observatory has lifts that display a 515-year visual timeline of New York City’s skyline and it’s an incredible view. Like if you were in a glass lift and watching history unfold right before your eyes.
