There are a few more complications with the WTC site than with fixing up Washington Square Park. I wouldn't be too concerned. Besides, the park was under construction while I was there for grad school and it didn't really affect my experience.
I don't see why a collection of four thousand-foot buildings needs to be any more complicated than fresh sidewalks and benches. Washington Square Park 2018!
But yes, the construction doesn't stretch through the entire park, and there's still plenty of space to enjoy it. I felt very at home there Saturday and realized that I could be extremely happy attending NYU.
