A New Phase Downtown as a Big Tent Is Folded Up

Since June 2007, a 37-foot-high, saddle-shaped polyester-and-aluminum tent — far more graceful to behold than it sounds — has been the public face of the World Trade Center project. The tent shelters the Church Street staircase at the temporary PATH terminal. This was to close at midnight Friday to permit construction of the permanent transportation hub. The tent will not be discarded. But it will disappear.
