The New York Times
reports today that New York Governor George Pataki supports
the World Trade Center design by Daniel Libeskind. Last week,
Mayor Michael Bloomberg expressed his support for the Libeskind
plan as well. Governor Patakis support would carry a
lot of weight in the decision process because he jointly controls
the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey with the Governor
of New Jersey.
The Times also notes that key people with the Port Authority
and the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) are
said to support the Libeskind design.
Officials have not yet seen final modifications to the two
finalist plans by Libeskind and Think, however. The Port Authority
and LMDC are expected to select a winning scheme late next
