$500M Is Enough

The Partnership for New York City, a group of business executives, just sent out a press release endorsing Mayor Bloomberg’s (and Governors Pataki’s and Corzine’s) “decision” to “cap” the cost of the World Trade Center Memorial at half a billion dollars, as our sister site The Politicker reported earlier to day.

What’s noteworthy here is that of all the things to come out on Bloomberg’s Budget Day, The Partnership chose this one to respond to first. It shows just how anxious the money people are that memorial spending will get out of control.

“Resources for rebuilding in Lower Manhattan are not unlimited,” the statement said.
