Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on World Trade Center Development

“Immediately following September 11, 2001, many feared that Lower Manhattan would never recover. Confidence in the future of Downtown was restored, however, as redevelopment of the World Trade Center site, the transit system and the surrounding area moved forward. Thanks to strong leadership and aggressive public and private investment, Lower Manhattan today is stronger and more vibrant than at any time in modern history. Its continued resurgence, however, depends on completion and full occupancy of the World Trade Center and the infrastructure that supports it. That goal is in sight, but will require a last push that all New Yorkers have a stake in achieving.”
