Gov. David Paterson told the Association for a Better New York yesterday that because of delays, he wants to “revisit the issue at Ground Zero. As we stand right now, it will be September 11 of 2011 before anything is actually built, and estimates are that that may be two or three years off. We can do better than that, because Ground Zero should always be a symbol of our resilience and an engine of our downtown economy.” The meaning of Paterson’s statement was unclear. Construction is underway at the Freedom Tower’s foundation, beneath the PATH station, the memorial and two of developer Larry Silverstein’s three World Trade Center towers.
