"I Trust The Public - Do You?"
Irwin Fruchtman, developer
"Every step must be carefully and exhaustively examined before we act.... I suggest that a process be invoked that will permit every resident in this tri-state area to vote on an overall generalized plan to be developed through a worldwide competition. The mayor of New York City and the Governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut shall be the Board of Directors of this process, and shall be further charged with the task of implementing the chosen plan. This is the only way to prevent those that have already come forth with their piecemeal ideas, based on their personal bias, to gain an advantage over the general public, who must be the ultimate decision makers on this matter. This is not a game of building blocks. I trust the public with this responsibility - do you?"
