Put The Memorial"Where The People We Loved And Lost Lived"
Edith Lutnick, Executive Director of the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund
"We polled our families, to see what it was that they wanted, and what they said was they wanted the memorial to be where the people that we loved and lost lived. They would like the memorial to be the footprints of the two buildings and the mall area directly in front of it.
We recognize the need to develop the rest of Lower Manhattan and how that is done is up to the communities and the LMDC, but we would like the memorial itself to be where the people lived.
They also do not want to have a vehicular roadway through where the people lived. If there needs to be a roadway to re-connect Greenwich Street or re-connect the communities of Lower Manhattan we would like it to [not cut through] the area.
Another thing that came up at the advisory meeting from a family member was that in considering architecturally how to do the different spaces, if there is a uniform type of structure, then it will make people realize the magnitude of the loss just by looking at the area. And the way that I believe she said it at the advisory meeting was for example if you had lights, streetlights, that are different from what you have in the rest of New York City in this 16 acres, then regardless of whether the memorial comprises significantly less than the 16 acres we'll still be able to convey and feel that this is in fact where the tragedy happened."
