A once heavily-used subway station that destroyed when the Twin Towers collapsed on 9/11 finally reopened on Saturday. It's been 17 years since the Cortlandt Street station--now renamed WTC Cortlandt--was in service. CBS News reports that the station's ceiling was completely renovated and 1,200 feet of track had to be rebuilt. WTC Cortlandt is fully accessible, features a new form of ventilation to keep the platform cool and contains a new piece of art that incorporates text from the Declaration of Independence and the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It's the last major aspect of New York City that required reconstruction after the attacks.
