Lower Manhattan: Rebuilding, Renewing, And Remembering

Rebuilding the World Trade Center site is just one facet of the grand—and challenging—effort to renew New York’s downtown.

"In the three years since the attacks, reconstruction efforts have aligned with the mayor’s vision. The WTC restoration has received the most attention, and is proceeding with a force of its own. But substantial, if less publicized, progress has been made in the areas of transportation planning, residential housing—both conversions and new construction—and neighborhood building. Fueled by close to $25 billion in federal reconstruction aid, lower Manhattan is being restored to its earlier glory."
