Larry Silverstein has a lot on his mind. In a wide-ranging interview with The Real Deal publisher Amir Korangy at the annual New York Showcase, the head of Silverstein Properties recounted the painstaking rebuild of Lower Manhattan following the 9/11 attacks, how Rupert Murdoch spurned him at the last minute for 2 World Trade Center, and why he might build the skyscraper without an anchor tenant in place. Silverstein also described what he believed was the ignorance of politicians in Albany, and why moving Downtown makes him feel young.
