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.”
“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.”
