Yesterday afternoon, I went to Century 21 Department Store to take advantage of "No Tax on Anything Week." I took the E Train and got off at Chambers Street, and exited up to the street directly in the middle of what used to be the World Trade Center. The subway and PATH didn't even stop there for about two years, then they began to stop but most of the exits were boarded up.

Now, there's a little paved plaza connecting all the subway lines and PATH trains, a prelude to a new transportation hub. Sure, there's still a pit there bigger than Yankee Stadium, and a big conflict over what to build over it, but it's an improvement.

So maybe it's not Ground Zero anymore. Maybe it's Ground 0.5.
