The Extra Space is for the Patriot Missile Battery
If NYC Mayor Bloomberg thinks he has his hands full with the city’s always fractious factions, just wait until the real fight begins over what to do with the site of the WTC. Everybody with an opinion — about six out of every five people — thinks he knows exactly what should be done with the site, and no two opinions agree. In fact, most of the “big” ideas are so completely opposed that no compromise seems possible.
So I’m going to defer to former Mayor Ed Koch, who says the Twin Towers should be rebuilt exactly as they were. Except for one little detail, Mr. Mayor: They should be exactly one story fuckin’ taller.
