Ground Zero Rises

My previous post, which may have seemed a little morose, was a contemplation about where NYC is going -- economically, culturally, politically, etc. I indicated and still believe that our city is at a crossroads -- and that the path we're taking might not be the best one.

However, there is some good news: Ground Zero is finally being built. After almost a decade since 9/11, the lawsuits, contracts, government agencies, etc. seem to have gotten their collective, frustrating acts together and the building is commencing. The memorial should be ready for the 10th anniversary of 9/11 next year and the completed buildings should be ready by 2013. So, while it took a long time, New Yorkers will no longer be condemned with staring at a giant hole in the ground -- Ground Zero will rise again, a tribute to the indefatigable spirit of our city.
