Projected onto a three-dimensional architectural model, visitors could explore highlights of Lower Manhattan by selecting buildings, parks and spaces via a handheld device. The interactive projection included museums, stores, residential buildings, the transit system etc. and provided information for all major attractions of Lower Manhattan.
