New York, Observed

Sam Hall Kaplan of KCRW discusses the New York rebuidling process on City Observed.

"At this point with so much talent and so many visions swirling around Ground Zero, I doubt if any one plan can survive the convoluted process needed for approval, and that possibly the only solution is a slow, incremental regeneration of the 16 acres and beyond, with a few new ground rules. Specifically, such a regeneration would involve dedicating the footprints of the towers as hallowed ground, for a memorial, rebuilding the area's infrastructure, the services and the streets, perhaps realigning a few as focused promenade, and then let New York be New York."
