Larry Silverstein, Hero Among The Heathen?
April 18th, 2006
Writing in City Journal, Nicole Gelinas calls the newly-built 7 World Trade Center “New York’s sole triumph over 9/11” and – in a startling departure from what has become conventional wisdom – praises developer Larry Silverstein, “who completed the 52-story tower while the pols dithered over 16 scarred acres across the street…By finishing Seven, Silverstein has replaced with hope the dread that infused lower Manhattan after 9/11. Yet pols and the press condemn him—because he’s in the private, not the public, sector.”By Jonathan Mandell on April 18, 2006, 5:48 am
