Intersection Near World Trade Center Reopens After Nearly 50 Years

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- An intersection near the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan reopened Thursday after being closed for nearly 50 years.

As WCBS 880's Rich Lamb reported, the city has opened the gates and for the first time since 1967, pedestrians are walking at the intersection of Greenwich and Fulton streets.

To the left, residents and tourists alike can gawk up at the top of Santiago Calatrava's $4 billion transportation hub.

The intersection disappeared from city maps when the super block of the old World Trade Center was built.

The area was once known as Radio Row, where scores of radio shops once operated.
