I just heard that workers at the WTC site are ready to finish up work. Didn't the early reports estimate it would take more than a year for the clean up?
Ben and I went downtown to the WTC when we visited NYC last month. It was dark and rainy and depressing. I had forgotten how big those buildings were. While standing near the old church, looking at the massive cranes and spotlights, it struck me that it sort of looked like they were just building some huge new mall or something. A quick glance at the hundreds of posters, flags and notes on the church fence tells you otherwise.
