I was in the city the other day and walked through the PATH station on my way to what I know as the World Financial Center.

And I walked past all of the top drawer stores, and I was thinking about the plaza level of the old World Trade. The Duane Reade, the Tie Rack; stores like you would see now at Port Authority.

I am okay with change, and I understand that the demographic that works there now has different tastes (and budgets) than when I worked around there.

But I will remember picking out ties there, and buying toothpaste. And then it wasn’t there.
