Lower Manhattan and the Region: Where We are and Where We Must Go
New York Transportation Journal, Fall 2002, Vol. 6, No. 1.
Immediately after 9/11, New York Governor George E. Pataki's senior staff asked the Rudin Center, in concert with the Regional Plan Association (RPA) and the Empire State
Transportation Alliance (ESTA),* to develop a conceptual plan for the renewal of Lower Manhattan. President George W. Bush's second visit to Lower Manhattan was scheduled for three weeks after 9/11 and the Governor wanted a preliminary plan to discuss with the President at that time.
