Power Politics At Ground Zero

Critics say architect Daniel Libeskind is "overreaching" by demanding greater control of the rebuilding at the site of the World Trade Center.

"Ground Zero planner Daniel Libeskind is demanding greater control over key projects at the World Trade Center site - angering downtown officials and complicating negotiations over his role in the rebuilding, sources told The Post.In what one source criticized as "overreaching," Libeskind has insisted - in sometimes heated talks - that he be the lead designer on signature elements like the PATH station and the 1,776-foot-tall Freedom Tower - even though he has no experience building office towers or major transportation projects, sources said.
