A 'New Deal' For Lower Manhattan?
"In the Informational City, by contrast, a headquarters is more closely linked to buildings of its type in other cities than to its own neighborhood or region. This is a given: architecture, planning and engineering can't change it. What these disciplines can do, however, is bring the urban environment into more coherent relationship to the global reality. This is the progressive, forward-looking challenge our planners now face.Lower Manhattan wants to be a portal a Grand Central, if you like between two infrastructures: transportation and information."
