Game of Inches at World Trade Center Site

Progress continues at the World Trade Center site, reports the NYT's David Dunlap. It's gotten to the point where planners are arguing over what goes where literally by the inch. A sample:

The concourse to the Winter Garden in Battery Park City has been lowered from the B2 level to the B3 level, on line with the PATH station mezzanine. This was necessary in part to clear a perpendicular path for a West Street-Route 9A underpass, but it also provides better pedestrian circulation and eliminates the need to relocate a large sewer, authority officials said.If you enjoyed that, you'll enjoy this crazy 3-D view of the site plan, too.
