NEW YORK (AP) - There's a new vision for the planned performing arts center at the World Trade Center site - as a multidisciplinary space, not just a center for dance.

The center's director, Maggie Boepple, told The New York Times the facility would encompass theater, music and film, as well as dance. The last proposal had called for it to be called the International Dance Center, with the Joyce Theater as its primary tenant.

But the city says the adjustment was necessary to make the Frank Gehry-designed center a viable enterprise in Lower Manhattan.

The Joyce's executive director, Linda Shelton, said she was pleased the theater would still be a part of the planned arts center.

Boepple said it's looking for an artistic director for the center, projected to open in 2019.

    Polluted Gowanus Canal doesn't scare away neighborhood development

    Every day, those who live and work in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn drive and bike and walk across their canal, growing a little more accustomed to but no less disgusted by its scent and appearance. Once the busiest canal in the United States, the Gowanus now bears the distinction as perhaps the most polluted body of water in the nation. No one knows exactly how polluted because few have summoned enough courage to dive into its murky depths to investigate.
