If you enjoyed the post-Thanksgiving sales at Century 21 over the past few days, good for you. As Felix Salmon of MemeFirst discovered from a recent rendering of the new World Trade Center development plans, it's quite possible that Century 21 will no longer be part of Lower Manhattan a few years from now:

"We know the Deutsche Bank building is slowly coming down. But will the same fate befall New York's very own Century 21? The Port Authority has sent up a trial balloon regarding its plans for retail at the WTC site, and according to the rendering (above), Century 21 (which is located on Church Street between Cortlandt and Dey) has simply ceased to exist! All that is left in its place is a patch of brown – one might almost say scorched – earth. It's not clear what's happened to 1 Liberty Plaza, either."

Already, the post on MemeFirst has generated about 25 comments, so it's obviously a topic of interest to New Yorkers. Or, at least, a topic of interest for New Yorkers concerned about high-quality discount shopping options.
