Touring Ground Zero

If someone was to ask me how the new PATH station at the World Trade Center was situated and how the train arrived, I know what I wouldn’t say. I wouldn’t say it comes in above ground (the PATH is mostly underground) and tours the perimeter of the property, first traveling East along the North side before turning around and traveling in the opposite direction before stopping, ready to head straight back into New Jersey. But that’s just what it does, giving the rider a panoramic view of the ground at Ground Zero. It would be weird if Ground Zero wasn’t essentially a construction site these days, and if all of this wouldn’t be underground soon, under buildings and footprint pools and footprints. I snapped this lame shot from the window as the train rounded the corner…
