"This just in!"
According to the BBC the whole 9/11 "Freedom Tower" shebang has been scrapped. This would explain nothing happening down there for the last few years. They have no idea what they're going to put up on the site or exactly when. The project is mired in financial politics.
Dates like 2012 through 2020 have been variously mentioned for another try at ground breaking.
Look why not put up an amusement park, and call it a job done. The City could certainly use one. We could call it "Terrorville" or "Osamaland".
Hell I would go all the time. They could put up one of those monster roller coasters. Ya know the 500 foot kind that gives you a zero "g" effect on the down slope. This would make a cool replacement for the almost completely evaporated Coney Island.
