A pedestrian walkway that runs through the World Trade Center site is now open, making it a little easier to get through Lower Manhattan.

A strip of Cortlandt Street between Greenwich and Church Streets will run along Tower 4, creating an easier way to access the memorial.

It's been nearly a half century since the area was accessible. The intersection and surrounding blocks were shut off in the 1960s to make way for the Twin Towers.

This will be the first recreated street intersection at the site of the former World Trade Center and is just one step in a larger process to reconnect the site to the rest of Lower Manhattan.
