Ground Zero Photos New York City

“Giuliani proclaimed, “We will rebuild. We’re going to come out of this stronger than before, politically stronger, economically stronger. The skyline will be made whole again.”
Wikipedia

“Goldberger is the author of “Up From Zero” about the rebuilding process.

“In the first year, it looked as if we were really gonna aim for the highest thing possible. And then, gradually, sort of like the waves eating away at a sand castle, you know, they just wore away, bit by bit and it’s gotten more and more ordinary,” says Goldberger.

“And the high expectations for this site sadly, they’re mostly gone,” he says.”

The plan for rebuilding Ground Zero

I Visited ground zero in Manhattan a few days ago to watch the rebuilding process. Seven years later it is still a hole in the ground.

I picked up a little brochure describing the plans to rebuild the wreckage, plans to build a great monument to show the strength of my country. All I found was a squabble of opinion and a still gaping hole in the center of the proverbial financial district of the modern world.

A gaping wound still festers.
