The World Trade Center’s “best-kept secret” has been revealed. As reported by the New York Times, the Port Authority released details on what will be “Liberty Park,” an acre-sized, elevated park lifted 25 feet above Liberty Street on the WTC site. Planned for completion in 2015, the $50 million landscaped terrace will connect the financial district with Battery Park City, while providing a panoramic view of the National September 11 Memorial and serving as a forecourt for the new St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church. More information on Liberty Park can be found here.


This will be Shvotastic!

My new WTC site rendering edit:


Great progress today, a concrete pour at the Transportation Hub’s plaza, the white blockades fore where windows were going to be are gone on the 6th floor, and St. Nicholas is in its first steps of rising with 2 circular pieces of metal going on the west side of the churches foundation!
