60 Minutes Calls World Trade Center Delays ‘A National Disgrace’

Despite having had some recent successes, like the news that Frank Gehry‘s theater plans are (maybe) back on and the demonstration of a working test of Michael Arad‘s memorial, we’ve been reporting on the mess that is the World Trade Center rebuilding/redesign for years now, from their numerous budget woes to the launch of a possibly ill-conceived new website to track their progress. Now as we’re just a year and a half away from the 10 year anniversary of September 11th, some higher profile media is just starting to notice and ask “Hey, why isn’t it finished yet?!” Case in point, the CBS news program, 60 Minutes recently ran this story, with the particularly damning title, “A National Disgrace.” Below is part one. Part two is available here.
