Two 50-ton columns from the wreckage of the September 11 attacks will arrive at the former WTC site today. That’s likely to cause less of a stir than an announcement about how construction on the new site is progressing. Governor David Paterson, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and a host of notables will give a rebuilding update today at noon.
For a taste of the sentiment they’ll offer, see the newly updated section on WTC progress on the Port Authority Web site: “There is a new spirit at the World Trade Center site. Progress is replacing delay. Decisions are being implemented. And consensus is the order of the day. It’s a new way of doing business, and it’s happening right now.”
For those who can’t make it, NY1 will provide minute-by-minute coverage. There’s also this live camera feed of the site’s progress. Almost as exciting as watching wet paint dry—if only it were in this case.
