NY opens its first legal recreational marijuana dispensary
"The first legal marijuana dispensary is now open in New York. The Lower Manhattan store is the first of 36 recently licensed dispensaries to open. It's operated by the nonprofit housing works. Charles king is CEO. We intend to use the proceeds from hopefully what will not just be one retail outlet. But more than one to ameliorate circumstances or other people who have been incarcerated due to possession and sale of drugs. Housing works is a minority controlled social service agency that serves people with HIV and aids, as well as those who are homeless and formally incarcerated. Charles Alexander with the state office of cannabis management says legalization has never been about just freeing marijuana. Repairing harm, harm that's been done even by this state's own policy.

Sacred sites see development on this week's AP Religion Roundup.
"Sacred sites see development on this week's AP religion roundup. A church reopens at ground zero and a Jordan River baptism site may soon see a new village. More than two decades after a tiny Greek Orthodox church in Lower Manhattan was destroyed in the September 11th attacks, that church is far grander replacement open to the public this week. Michael sorrows helped organize the new saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox church and shrine. The national shrine completes the Trinity at ground zero. You have the museum. You have the reflecting polls, but now faith has been restored to ground zero. Say Nicholas is in an elevated park overlooking the rebuilt trade centers memorial Plaza. Olga Pablo says it has been a long time coming. 21 years, a lot of hardships, a lot of ups and downs, but we finally made it. Meanwhile, another building project is being planned on the banks of the Jordan River near the traditional baptism side of Jesus. This is worried some who want to preserve the area's character. Samir murad tears the organization planning the development. The baptism site itself is a Unesco World Heritage protected site. And will remain in its pristine condition as it has done for the past 2000 years. The Jordanian government donated about 340 acres of land for the development of the area known as Bethany beyond the Jordan. Tradition says John the Baptist, baptized Jesus here in what became Christianity's third holiest site. Many modern day visitors Don white robes and immerse themselves in the sacred waters, the development work will kick off with a sustainable village near the historic site. Later stages will see the introduction of botanical gardens, a bird sanctuary, and a wellness center. Historian Ian torrhen says preservation in the midst of development is crucial. Part of the listing is to preserve the site in its wilderness state, not turn it into something which is over commercialized, but to retain its spirituality. I'm Walter ratliff.

Rudy Giuliani Remembers the NYC Threat Assessment Pre-9/11
"By the time you were mad, you shared something very interesting about the threat assessment is the targets for terrorist attack in New York. When it comes to Washington, it was clear The Pentagon military power, you're thinking of Congress for flight 93. But the World Trade Center wasn't the top ranked target, was it, mister mayor. No, it was actually. The stock exchange. And if you think about it, the World Trade Center, the World Trade Center was not the center of trade. I think they thought it was. We don't really do a lot of trading in the World Trade Center. If you wanted to hit the center of trade, you would hit the New York Stock Exchange. It's an office building and a big office building. And an important enough is building with very critical functions, but it's not much different than another office building in New York. Where it was a, from their point of view, a good target is it was a transportation hub. So it really, really for a long period of time made a major dent in transportation. Also, any place down there would be a tough place to hit, but because of what was across the street, which I don't even think they knew, the major electric lines all Lower Manhattan because AT&T was there. And the AT&T building was collaterally hit with a big hole in the center of it. So it would put out electricity in all of Lower Manhattan. And finally, the part of the city that they hit. They may have known this is literally underwater. So there was a danger there that never happened, thank God that that whole area could have been slowly. Because the slurry walls that keep out the Hudson River were damaged. So let's say we had had even a mild hurricane. We could have flooded out all of our Manhattan. So the first thing we did was furiously put those story walls back together and just pray for no rain.

"Elizabeth II. I'm Scott Carr. And I'm Susanna Palmer in the Bloomberg newsroom. It's been 21 years since the attacks of September 11th of 2001. In New York, the families of victims will again gather for the ceremony inside the 9 11 memorial Plaza in Lower Manhattan. Mayor Eric Adams showed up yesterday afternoon at the Jacob riis houses in the East Village neighborhood, then drank a glass of water from the faucet of an apartment there before he declared the water safe to drink. Residents of the complex had been alarmed for 8 days after an Illinois lab hired by the city detected arsenic in the drinking water. It turned out to be a false alarm. Still some residents are skeptical, including Liana perilla. I don't think I'll be drinking it for a while. And the lab later retracted its findings and the city's own test results later cleared the water of any unsafe contaminants. The focus turns back to inflation in the week ahead, Bloomberg's Karen Moscow has more.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn Is in Studio to Detail Some Amazing Revelations
"Back talking to Jonathan Khan, the movie is the harbingers of things to come. You can see it sell them now, dot com. So Jonathan, you were just revealing what you talk about in the film, you call it the mystery of the island and you were referring to the great John winthrop. The governor of the Massachusetts bay colony, how he would have this kind of retreat on governor's island, which is in Massachusetts, which is in Boston bay. He would face Boston and pray for Boston. Okay, now the punchline. In doing so, he's praying for the whole civilization that became America. That's right. That's right. And so but he also the one for those who didn't hear who warned America do not turn for God if you follow God, you're going to be the most blessed nation people. If you turn away, then judgments come. So what happened to John winthrop? What happened to the island of winthrop John with him? The island of John winthrop was subsumed in the 20th century became an airport. The airport is Logan airport, the very place where the planes took off on 9 11 and headed to New York City on the island of the man who warned America. It all started there. This is getting really eerie now. No, it is amazing. These things are absolutely amazing. And it's amazing to me that God has chosen you to reveal these things because you're not making them up. You're just discovering what already exists. It's there. Eric, it's interesting because this is the only interview pretty much. That's in Lower Manhattan where all these things, this all centers here. I mean, the harbingers are here. We're here. I was standing at the ground of ground zero, and that's where it all started. Something said, the spirit said, look, I was looking at this tree that I said, there's something you have to find. You have to seek it, and that's how it all began. I could never reproduce any of it. Even the process, I don't know how to have it. What

"And that Congress was a new way for me to serve those communities and the additional communities in Lower Manhattan. And why Congress instead of the assembly? What is it that appeals to you about being able to potentially represent these communities at the federal level? Is there something that is drawing you is pulling you other than the trips to Washington D.C. instead of Albany? What's drawn you here interested in Congress instead of the assembly? Well, so much of what we, the challenges on the ground for New Yorkers, are often a result of federal policy, federal funding decisions, federal rights, for example, and so I'm in a district where it's both bridges, the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridge come into my district. I have a major interstate highway. Those decisions and the funding of those decisions, the lack of funding of the infrastructure are critical issues to the folks I represent and anybody who's in that western Brooklyn corridor. The iguanas canal superfund site is in my district. That has been something that we worked on getting for many years. And that is an EPA superfund site. So the federal issues on the ground are very real, housing is another major issue that affects my district as well as everybody's district. The lack of support that the federal government has given to public housing and other housing programs over the last several decades has really made so much of our housing unaffordable and untenable. So those are big issues at the federal level. That also affect all of us. Here in New York at the ground level. And because I have that experience in working with communities, city, state, and the federal government, for me, this was a natural move to sort of connect those dots in a fundamentally different way than you can from a single assembly district. Gotcha. So we'll get into more of what you want to do if elected in a moment, but let's talk about your assembly tenure you were elected in 2014, so you've been there several terms now.

"What becomes of that? And so I think there are different possibilities that I hope the city planning commission will explore because the truth is right now. You don't really have many options. Just legally in terms of zoning and other regulations. You're constrained. And so I do think a positive of the pandemic will cause a rethinking. And I could give you one concrete example. We had a hotel that was failing before the pandemic. And they wanted to transform it into a senior assisted living location. Which I think would be wonderful for the neighborhood. And sort of perfectly suited for that. But the zoning didn't really allow for it. And they were starting to have that conversation and then the pandemic hit. So I hope there's more creative thinking that comes out of this of what are some of the needs we're facing and how can we make those transitions? That kind of takes me to a question I had for you as a former city council member, especially too, about zoning and Lower Manhattan are there. Are there sort of more sweeping zoning changes, fixes that you think are needed in any either big or small swath of Lower Manhattan? Are there ways that you want the city planning commission to really rethink parts of Lower Manhattan or any, you know, anything that you want to sort of bring to people's attention about the ways that zoning maybe has become outdated? Well, I guess sort of similar sort of a tag on what I just mentioned was, again, the hotels have rebounded more quickly than they had expected. But I was advocating and I would still add the Kate for more flexibility to transform hotel rooms into affordable housing. Or supportive housing. Again, some of them are very well laid out. But all kinds of zoning issues come into play that make it impossible. And we even had a couple of interested parties philanthropic parties who were interested in purchasing hotels to build affordable housing. But the rules didn't allow for it. I won't get into why. Lots of my new show involving elevator sizes. You know, things that are just right, so I would state and city stuff to play both levels of government or say, and I think this big picture allowing for more flexibility. Within reason. But are we, I mean, you know, this is, I know, I'm sure you want to be somewhat diplomatic about this, but to me, it's already May of 2022. People keep, you know, the mayor had a press conference about this trying to push the state to do more that wasn't done yet and people are frustrated that no projects have been done anywhere, not just Lower Manhattan, but midtown. And it's like, you know, maybe in the end, some of the inaction will work out just fine because as we're seeing some things are rebounding faster than expected. So maybe it's good that there's been an action, but in some of these zoning changes in such I understand it's really complicated, but it's kind of time's ticking here. And how long have you been covering government of politics? A decade. Okay. So you know how this works. Yes. Or doesn't work sometimes. The stew of our democracy. The wheels do not turn quickly. Is it your impression from the business leaders that you work with and speak with that we're sort of at the new equilibrium in terms of, you know, we've seen increases in the subway ridership largely a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, thing. So it seems like a lot of people are doing Monday Friday from home..

"I mean, every single fairy line comes to pure 11. So that has been helpful for us. I mean, I think those are some of our selling points that people may not realize. But you know, as I mentioned before, bringing back the programming Brookfield has their own arts program, they had their ice skating rink, they had the nutcracker, they do holiday events, but all year long. And that will come back. At the World Trade Center, they reopen schmucks Berg a few weeks ago, and the beer garden, which will be open during the summer. In addition to what else they may end up planning. We are, as I said, doing our live theater performances for three weeks in June. While the Lower Manhattan cultural council will be resuming their annual river to river festival, we're doing a dine around festival in June with 30 plus restaurants where you can come and sample a lot of fare. So, you know, again, I think whether people feel more comfortable being outside or just want to enjoy the neighborhood and the views, having this kind of programming is something that we're focusing on. Should I take part of your answer there to say that you don't think there is more room for just shutting down more streets in Lower Manhattan two car and truck traffic? Is that not, I mean, there's a way when you walk around certain parts of Lower Manhattan where the cars and trucks have almost no choice but to go quite slowly and there is a lot of pedestrian traffic, but there's still a lot of vehicle traffic that makes you a little uneasy walking with a little kid or on a bike or those types of things. Any thoughts on changes there or do you feel pretty? No, I mean, I think it's always possible. I would say a couple of things. Again, we don't have the traditional street grid. So it's not as if you close 14th street to buses only. You can just go on 13th or 12th or tenth or 11th. We don't have typical sort of north south, east, west, alternatives. We just don't. And so logistically for the fourth largest commercial business district in the city. But also for the residents who live here. Because they're sprinkled all throughout the district. I mean, the entire south side of Wall Street is residential. And they want to be able to access their buildings. And they want to be able to get their deliveries as well. So not to say it couldn't. I would say, but it's a different challenge than in other neighborhoods. We have tried it. We did do it a couple of streets during the pandemic. With mixed success to be perfectly honest, people didn't really use pearl street. And even the restaurant who had sort of adopted it after a few months told us that it wasn't really working for them either. And street, we did a little bit longer. But again, we started to get a lot of complaints from the residents who live along and street. The hotel that's on Anne street in terms of getting hotel guests in and out. So I wouldn't say it's something, as I said, are open to, have explored, have experimented with. It's just a little bit more complicated if you literally look at the map of the neighborhood. Interesting..

"Also, it's a tourist destination and then third people New Yorkers making Lower Manhattan more of a place to be who don't live there. But as a place for, you know, sort of fun, partial day trips for people who live in New York City. How are you thinking about that piece of the equation too? And that was a very conscious marketing effort, actually that we did in the kind of once vaccines were available and people were feeling a little more brave and bold and safe. Is to target on social media, New Yorkers, because we weren't traveling nationally. Certainly not internationally. And it was a really special time to explore the city, frankly. I mean, I think all of us, you know, my brother went out to flushing more than he ever had. And I went out to parts of Brooklyn that I hadn't been to in a long time because, you know, you want to do things and you can't sit in your apartment all the time. And so I had friends who said I've lived here my whole life and I just went to the Statue of Liberty for the first time. One of my Friends from stuyvesant from high school took the Staten Island ferry, hadn't done it in 20 years. Because it was fun to sort of rediscover our city and to your point without tourists around. Without my family did some of this stuff and, you know, without the lines and so forth. You know, it's like busy, but not crazy, and it was very much a lot. I walked over the Brooklyn Bridge for the first time again because it had been such a zoo. And it was amazing. It was practically empty, except that there were people industrious people who had set up barbershops on the bridge.

"It's on the list of things you want to see and do. Let's zoom back out here as we sit here in May of 2022 without going into a lot of discussion. Let's just sort of throw out some top lines from your perspective. What are sort of the two biggest challenges facing Lower Manhattan right now? What would you name three if you want? It's not a strict. I strict question, but just sort of the big picture here. What are the two or three biggest challenges that Lower Manhattan is facing right now? Well, look, one, again, it's not unique to us, but the quality of life issues that are on everybody's minds. You know, keeping the streets clean and safe, making sure that the subways are running and the sort of bread and butter issues that frankly mayor Adams was elected talking about are true here. I think we've been lucky and that it's not as bad here. As it is in other places in terms of some of the street conditions, partly because we have such a robust force over a hundred people of ours who are out every day sweeping the streets, planting beautiful flowers, removing graffiti, and so neighborhoods that have business improvement districts like this, wherever they are, are faring much better because we're spending time and money to do some of that work. But at the end of the day, we can't replace what the NYPD or the city sanitation crews ought to be doing and are trying their best to do. So, you know, I think that is the number one topic on people's minds when you go around town in terms of long-term success, how we turn around both the reality, but truthfully, the perception. We are still an incredibly safe city when you look at the history and the numbers. There's no question. I was born in the 70s. I grew up here in the 80s 90s. I've lived in New York my entire life. We are much, much safer than when I grew up. But that's not the perception that people have. And so that has to change. You know, I would say clearly that, of course, goes back to the 2019 conversation, right? I mean, you know, 2019 was a very different new normal. And that's the recency bias that people have. They want to feel that way, and obviously everybody wants the city to be safer and not trending in the other direction. Absolutely. And I do think that is an impediment for people both to live here long term and the return to work. That for us, obviously that's an issue. I'm not as concerned about it in that, I think it's pretty clear we're not going back to 5 day a week, 9 to 5 culture, maybe ever. It's hard to imagine certainly any time in the near future. But people are coming back to work, whether it's two days a week, three days a week, on a hybrid schedule, depending on where they work and what their job is. And so I think as we adjust to that, you know, we're going to have to evolve. And that means in terms of our retail and supporting them and making an effort as New Yorkers to support our small businesses. But also for them, when are they open? Is it the same day? Is it the same hours if people aren't coming in on Friday any more than Friday happy hours and the thing?.

"To Lower Manhattan and there's new businesses opening up. A pretty encouraging report, wouldn't you say? No, for sure. I mean, the first quarter traditionally doesn't matter what year you're in is never the best quarter. Typically. And even though clearly, we're not where we would like to be pre COVID. It was the strongest second strongest quarter we've had since the pandemic hit. And so that was promising. We certainly hear anecdotally from our Friends in the brokerage community that there is activity in the market right now for sure. So that is somewhat encouraging. Our hotels are also starting to see both better room rates and better bookings. And especially because this was a neighborhood that traditionally was more dependent upon business travel, which will take longer to come back. I think our hotel years I know have been pleasantly surprised that they have rebounded and that as tourists start to come back, they are choosing to come to the neighborhood. And so some of the hotels that closed temporarily have reopened or have changed hands, we have a number that are about to open that are brand new and we still have hotels in the pipeline. So that has come back more quickly than our hospitality Friends expected. You mentioned residential. It's incredible. And we are seeing record high reps. Having well before the pandemic. The median rent now, $4400 a month. So that is also a strong sign that no matter where you're working or what your work schedule is like, people are choosing with their feet and their pocketbooks to live in this neighborhood. Yeah, it's very interesting and some of the tourism numbers, as you said, are looking better. And I was actually looking at this report, I was actually a little surprised how decent solid. I mean, again, this is all relative, obviously, to the depths of the pandemic in 2020, right? I mean, you can compare a lot of things to 2019 and feel very depressed and then you can compare things to 2020 and feel optimistic, right? So I think obviously it's nicer to choose the latter. But in terms of looking at some of the tourist visits in 2021 and some of those numbers, I mean, that too looks like it's really on the rebound. Well, then that's a perfect way of putting it. We like to sometimes put 2019 hide that column. In the spreadsheet. Good to aspire to. You know, for sure, in 2011, tourism was still way off. Our high of 14 million, but up over a 100% from the year before. And you look at New York City and companies projections for the year, they're very robust for 2022. I mean, almost a full recovery in 22. And when I went out to get lunch today, I walked past two tour groups walking around on Broadway, which surprises me because this is may. This is not spring break. It's not the summer. We're already seeing a tourists come back to the city. And the truth is, if you're coming to New York, you're coming downtown. And that wasn't true, ten or 15 years ago, but people want to see the 9 11 memorial and museum. They want to see Trinity church or the stock exchange or the bull or all of the above. Clearly the Statue of Liberty has been a long draw. That's a day trip. So people are committing to that. But when I have friends or family or people come downtown, I come to the New York..

"And the alliance for downtown New York manages the downtown Lower Manhattan business improvement district. And serves a wide swath of Lower Manhattan and Jessica lapin is the president of the alliance for downtown New York and joins us now. Thank you for being here. It's my pleasure. When you hear me describe Lower Manhattan like I did there, what did I miss? When you're talking very generally, you know, sort of 30,000 feet about the area that you're so invested in and helping to lead and revitalize here. What are some of the ways that you sort of in sweeping ways describe Lower Manhattan? I mean, the first thing I say to people is there is definitely kind of a different feel on the streets today than there was 6 months ago, 12 months ago, it was we've had our ups and downs. Of course, over the course of the history of the neighborhood, as you mentioned, and certainly through the course of the pandemic, I don't think, you know, what we saw here was that drastically different than what you saw in a lot of parts of Manhattan, especially kind of south of 96th street. And being essential business district obviously it's been tough losing losing our workers that said having over 65,000 residents who called this neighborhood home today really did help us in ways that we could have expected but haven't had to see before. Unfortunately compared to other central business districts that don't have that kind of residential base. So, you know, I think what I tell people is, it feels different in a good way. The streets are increasingly more crowded and more dynamic. And you know, we know this is going to be a long road to a full recovery, but we feel much more optimistic than we did 6 months ago. And the downtown alliance that you lead recently published its first quarter report, just a couple of days before our conversation here, or I guess a week before. So we're speaking here on Wednesday, may 10th, and at the beginning of the month, published a first quarter report for the first few months of 2022 with data on commercial office, retail residential hospitality, development projects and there's some encouraging signs there that commercial leasing activity is growing, but of course the office vacancy rates are still quite high. On the residential side, the rents are through the roof setting records and there's some questions I want to get to with you about affordability and how to bring more affordable housing.

"To max politics. This is Ben max from Gotham gazette, a publication of citizen union foundation. Thanks very much for tuning in here for this episode of the show. Today we are discussing the present and the future of Lower Manhattan, one of the city's major central business districts, of course, an area of the city with a great deal of character, its own unique pieces and contributions from Wall Street to battery park, Chinatown to the seaport and so much more. And of course, an area of the city devastated by the attacks of September 11th, 2001, and in many ways transformed in their aftermath, Lower Manhattan was also among the parts of the city, most hurt by the COVID pandemic when it comes to its people, its economic activity, and that activity is highly dependent upon both tourism and office work, both of which were ground to a halt, of course, during the pandemic and are in the process of rebounding here, but are far from pre-pandemic rates. And there's so much more to discuss about Lower Manhattan and get into and that's why today we're going to discuss where things stand in Lower Manhattan, what the future may hold. And I'm pleased to be joined by Jessica lappin, the president of the alliance for downtown New York. Otherwise known as the downtown alliance, a position Jessica lappin has been in since 2014 after she left the city council after a couple of terms representing other parts of Manhattan.

And in New York City in politics, we are of course looking at the still early days of mayor Eric Adams administration and it is budget season in the city, especially now that the state budget has been passed, the city knows what's coming through from the state and the city will advance its own budget plan, which has a lot riding on it and what will be a roughly $100 billion New York City budget due by the July 1st start of next fiscal year. And there is, of course, a whole lot of policy involved and dependent on that budgeting and informing that budgeting and we're digging into a lot of it as well at Gotham. Gazette.

If a student is one of those kids who has a problem with the segregation, he can join a 5th group that says they appear to be uncomfortable with the format. And before I go any further, here's a pretty obvious question. What if the kids half black and half white? What group do they go into?

"On W N Y C. Good morning again, everyone and with the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on Saturday. Now we continue our coverage of things that 9 11 changed. In this segment, We'll talk about how 9 11 changed Lower Manhattan and Middletown, New Jersey, And if that seems like a weird pairing, consider this. Middletown lost more of its residents. In the World Trade Center attack than any locality other than New York City itself. 37 people what happens to a bedroom community after that, right away and 20 years later. And what about Lower Manhattan, which went from War zone Mass grave cancer swamp to global tourism destination hot residential community that it never was before the attacks and still the epicenter of investment banking all now in question again, by the way, because of the pandemic, right? With me. Now are two guests. New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman. He has an article called Rebuilding Ground Zero was a mess. Lower Manhattan bloomed anyway. And Tony Perry, the mayor of Middletown Township, and mostly white and affluent bedroom community of around 65,000, people, sort of at the top of the Jersey Shore. If you know the map. In Monmouth County. It seems to always make those lists of the safest places to live in America. But it wasn't a safe place to be from on 9 11. Michael Kimmelman. Welcome back, Mayor Perry. Welcome to WN my shape. Thanks for thanks for having me Brian and Mayor Perry Since your first time, I'll start with you. Middletown lost the most people of any place outside New York City, 37. Why Middletown? Well, you know, Middletown, we're only a 42 square mile town, right? Like you said at the top of the Jersey Shore. Sandy Hook is a part of Middletown. And you know, we're only an hour south of New York City, an hour train ride south of New York City and Um, you know, that led to obviously a big number of our residents working in not just lower Manhattan, but all across New York City. So, um, you know, it's unfortunate that we have this distinction. Obviously, the 37 individuals that we lost on September 11th but But you know this community is is incredibly strong and we rallied then, and we rallied 20 years later. An hour by train may be much, much less than that by ferry because for people who don't know the map of New Jersey and just how close to the trade center that tip is And how visually striking it is. I've been there to look at Lower Manhattan from the tip of the town, which is really just south of the city. Can you describe where Middletown is in relation to the World Trade Center and who lived there on September 10th 2000 and one and what the connection is with the trade center in that community. Yeah, sure. So, you know, you're You're absolutely right. Brian. We have an incredible view from pretty much anywhere in our town of Lower Manhattan. And, uh, you know, now we look out and we see that beautiful freedom tower. Gracing, Um, New York City and but, you know, 20 years ago. Obviously, these were the the final days leading up to you know, the last time the 65 67,000 people that called Middletown home Would would see those two towers. Um, you know, flying high above New York City. Um, but you know, our town were very socio, economically diverse town. We have folks from all walks of life, so whether they were on Wall Street Or trades people who going into the city like they did every single morning. Whether by boat by train or driving in, you know, Middletown has still to this day has a large number of its residents that are based out of New York City for their jobs. And before we bring in Michael Kimmelman. It's hard enough for a community to process a violent death of one person from the community how, as a community did Middletown start to figure out how to process the violent deaths? 37 people. In one swoop. Well, you know, the community had to That that was their That was their only choice. Um, you know, sadly, many of us watched what was happening in Lower Manhattan live on television or minutes after it had happened on television. And Knowing that your neighbor, your friend, your parents. Your Children. Work in lower Manhattan or or, you know, not just in the World Trade Center, but anywhere in New York City. You had to jump up and do something. And that's what Middletown did. And that's why you know we've embodied. The Middletown will never forget, um, line that we saw, um, you know, everywhere that the president recited that Elected officials from all across the country recited Middletown said It was never going to forget those. But you know you, you, you bring up a good point. And how do you rally around 37 individuals? The the the minutes and hours after 9 11 you felt and had to cope with what you had saw on television. But the Immediate aftermath. The the minutes and hours and days, Weeks, months after September 11th, you continued not only to see The adoption of these families by perfect strangers. We had an organization. The their name was favor friends assisting victims of terror who immediately began raising money. And before January of 2000 and two had raised over $500,000 was delivering Christmas gifts to the Children that had lost parents that we're helping them pay their mortgages, helping them. And assisting them in any way that they could. It was a testament That that that the like I said the days and weeks and months following September 11 2000 and one was a testament to the American spirit and to the to the giving and thoughtfulness of every single Middletown resident and people all across this country. You used the phrase there that I'm going to ask you to come back to later in the segment. Never forget which a lot of people say. And coincidentally, we didn't set you up for this. Coincidentally, after we're finished with you two, we're going to do a call in For listeners pegged to this 20th anniversary asking What does the phrase never forget mean to you? Because we do hear time and time again with respect to 9 11, So I'm going to give you a few minutes to think about that, and I'm going to cycle back to you. Later on and ask you what never forget means to you and to the people of Middletown, but Michael Kimmelman to the title of your piece in The New York Times. Rebuilding ground zero was a mass lower Manhattan bloomed anyway. Remind us how is rebuilding ground zero a mess. Well, Brian, you know, um I think the general thing I'd say is, as Mayor Perry did that The longer term story right is is of a remarkable Coming together and resilience, and I think that's what We've seen as well, you know, in the face of Covid, but in those early months, especially and and a couple of years, even after 9 11 The You know the there was a kind of mosh pit of of competing interests, political interests and economic interests and architectural proposals and Mhm. And a kind of rush. To build to rebuild both as a symbol of the city's resilience, But also as uh, you know an urgent matter to help the city recover economically in that neighborhood recover. So You know, the best part of it really was that there were a lot of ideas out there for how we might Rethink reboot essentially lower Manhattan, um, in in ways that were consonant with how the city was already evolving and the city's economy was evolving. But the push was for I should say for a mix of very understandable and less understandable reasons. Um, the push was To to create a memorial. Um, one that was befitting the scale of this calamity and also to rebuild office towers, which had been destroyed so much, uh, something like 60% I think of the grade. Called Class. A office space in lower Manhattan was destroyed. Um, not just there, but in the in the General area, And so there was, there was an urgent need to rethink the business of Lower Manhattan and as a result I think you know that neighborhood that immediate area. Ended up being, uh shall we say less? Integrated with the rest of the city and, um and seems well to me, But I don't think I'm alone as in some ways a missed opportunity. And you're still critical of the immediate New World Trade Center area, But To the larger downtown neighborhood. You remind us of the Doom Slayer's who predicted that no one would ever live or work in tall buildings or that neighborhood again and yet the residential population in the district Bloomed to around 70,000 people, which happens to be around the same number of people as live in Middletown, New Jersey. So, what happened to that? What happened to that fear, Michael? Yeah, It's an interesting lesson for today, too, right? I mean, we were always predicting the city's doom. We're always getting people coming out and telling you how other cities What one calamity after another is going to be the death, Nail and Sure. After 9 11.

The Legacy and the Future of Pride Month
