Steve Rosenbaum on the Memorial at Ground Zero

Thursday, September 09, 2010

Documentarian Steve Rosenbaum discusses his project: videotaping and photographing construction at the memorial center at Ground Zero. An article about his work, "Inside the Future 9/11 Reliquary," appears in the September 13 issue of New York magazine.  Rosenbaum is also the director of the acclaimed documentary film "7 Days in September," which combined his own video footage with donated video footage of New Yorkers dealing with the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Arthur, I had exactly the same observation! It's like a verbal tic. Terribly irritating.

The guest would sound a lot more credibly intelligent if he didn't begin his answer to *every* *single* *question* with the word 'so'.

Oy. Where's Patricia T. O'Conner when we need her?

Just an observation - the guest cannot begin expressing a thought without uttering the word "so."

I would like to have seen Ground Zero restored by the "soaring memorial" that Rudy Giuliani proposed, integrated into the life of the city, rather than this post-modern concept that will function as a permanent funereal void downtown.

I love the fact that they're going to have trees be a major part of the memorial (the original plaza and towers was always so bare and wind-blown.)

But are they really planning on planting just one species (some kind of oak, I believe?) Urban Trees 101 says never plant a monoculture--too vulnerable to disease.

WTC Steel Installed at 9/11 Memorial
Officials have hoisted a 50-ton piece of World Trade Center steel at ground zero and vowed to open the Sept. 11 memorial by next year, although they acknowledge construction at the site will be ongoing. http://www.newslook.com/videos/248259-wtc-steel-installed-at-9-11-memorial?autoplay=true
