PHOTO OPPORTUNITY - PORT AUTHORITY TO BEGIN INSTALLATION OF NEW FENCE WRAP TO ENHANCE APPEARANCE OF WTC SITE
|Work Will Be Done on Sunday, November 16
The Port Authority will begin to cover the fencing around the World Trade Center site on Sunday, November 16, with a new, clean and informative wrapping depicting the current progress on the site, what the site will look like when it's rebuilt and improved way-finding signs so pedestrians can get to their destinations faster and more easily.
Media wishing to cover the installation should assemble at the corner of Vesey and Church streets at 10 a.m. to view the work in progress.
The 8-foot-high, blue vinyl mesh wrapping is part of the Port Authority's new effort to increase public outreach, transparency and accountability, and improve the quality of life in Lower Manhattan during the rebuilding effort.
