Animation: Completing the Vision. Foster Maki Rogers (Courtesy of Silverstein Properties)
"Join me in the commitment to create a community in Lower Manhattan that will be unrivaled anywhere in the world. Together, we can accomplish this by drawing from the story of Lower Manhattan's birth, from the same civic vision that inspired Hamilton, Jefferson and Madison.
New York was born on the tip of this island out of a spirit of ambition, creativity, and perseverance, and so too will Lower Manhattan be reborn. This is the mission of the LMDC and of this administration. I look forward to working together with our partners in the public and private sectors to achieve it.
