Said Gov. Patakai: “This vast chasm, dug at the very spot where the gleaming Twin Towers once rose to the sky, is a symbol of what we can accomplish if we work together.”

Now for a post 9/11 anniversary round-up-o-rama (courtesy of Arch News Now). The last link, a commentary by Dan Bischoff of the Newark Star-Ledger, is NOT to be missed. He absolutely eviscerates Arad’s Memorial design.
