Rebuilding the WTC Site
Take the World Trade Center Quiz
Democratic Presidential Candidate
and Mass. Senator John Kerry on
Rebuilding the World Trade Center
"And I believe one of the first things we should commit to - with federal help that underscores our nation's purpose – is to rebuild the towers of the World Trade Center and show the world we are not afraid - we are defiant."
"To those who might say why create another target, the answer is simple: There is no shortage of targets in the United States: There is a White House - There is a Capital and countless other tall buildings. This is not a question of targets. It is a question of strength and our national resolve to stand up and show our strength. That is the best monument we could build to those who died yesterday."
--Remarks Delivered on the US Senate Floor on September 12, 2001. Excerpted from "Kerry: "We Must Build a New World Trade Center -- and Build American Resolve for A New War On Terrorism"
NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg on security fears
that may prevent re-opening the Statue of Liberty:
The Statue of Liberty is "a symbol of America. C'mon, let's stand up and have some guts...You can't let terrorists win."
So, why do these principles not apply to the WTC site and the Twin Towers?
--"Bloomberg blasts Statue of Liberty closing," CNN, April 6, 2004.
Donald Trump on the Pataki-Mandated Site Plan:
"...I hate the design, and I don't think Larry likes the design. It was foisted upon him. It's a 50-story building that looks like it's 120 stories. It's a skeleton. And that's the last thing we need in New York is a skeleton of -- representing the World Trade Center. I think that it is not an appropriate design. I don't like it..."
The Libeskind plan is "a monstrosity of garbled nonsense."
--Donald Trump, on September 12, 2003, as reported by Bloomberg News

Rebuilding News at a Glance
- Silverstein Properties, Inc. lost its court case with nine out of twelve insurers. The firm, which had leasehold ownernership of the Twin Towers is seeking a double insurance settlement.
- The redesigned "Freedom Tower" designed in often tense collaboration by Daniel Libeskind and David Childs has morphed into a structure that is nearly half spire and antenna. It is to be approximately 70 stories of enclosed space, topped with 276-feet of lattice work containing wind turbines and an antenna, all totalling 1,776 feet.
- Libeskind's plan was harshly criticized at the LMDC's environmental review hearings not only by the rebuild movement, but environmentalists, civic groups, Community Board 1, 9/11 victims' families and others.
- Community Board 1 residents and businesses are not happy with the proposed memorial space as it would make the WTC site completely impassable, requiring pedestrians to circumnavigate it.
- New York has demonstrated time after time that they want their identity back but feel they are not being heard.
"World trade means world peace and consequently the World Trade Center buildings in New York...had a bigger purpose than just to provide room for tenants. The World Trade Center is a living symbol of man's dedication to world peace...beyond the compelling need to make this a monument to world peace, the World Trade Center should, because of its importance, become a representation of man's belief in humanity, his need for individual dignity, his beliefs in the cooperation of men, and through cooperation, his ability to find greatness."
--Minoru Yamasaki, Architect, World Trade Center
