Bloomberg Versus Paterson and Corzine at WTC

Just after 6 p.m. on Monday, Mayor Bloomberg’s press office emailed a statement on negotiations surrounding the World Trade Center, where a private developer and the public sector have hit a major obstacle over financing. In May, the various officials involved pledged to try to have a resolution by Thursday, June 11. With no solution then, the mayor asked for a few more days, with the hope of having some sort of plan by Monday.
The result was less than a breakthrough: “We continue to work through the details to try to arrive at a consensus.”
Ever since Larry Silverstein first approached the Port Authority late last year with a request that it back financing on his towers at the World Trade Center, officials at the state and city level have been at a loss for a workable solution.
