Efforts To Reopen Buildings Around Ground Zero Continue

Efforts to reopen buildings in the "Red Zone' -- the fenced-in area around the site of the World Trade Center disaster -- are making progress.

"Several damaged office buildings around Ground Zero...are on track to reopen for business surprisingly soon. By the end of October, even locations like 1 Liberty Plaza, which was repeatedly reported to have collapsed, are expected to reopen. Altogether, they have about 16 million square feet of damaged office buildings in the Red Zone, the name the city has given the fenced-in militarized sector that encompasses the disaster site and its surroundings."
