Statement from Speaker Silver on
One World Trade Center

Today marks a milestone in the remarkable journey our community has made since the devastation of 9/11. As One World Trade Center becomes our city’s tallest building, it serves as a beacon signaling our courage, our determination and our incredible resilience. It also serves as powerful evidence that Lower Manhattan has emerged stronger and more vibrant than ever, still a world-renown commercial center and one of our city’s most attractive neighborhoods in which to live, work and raise a family.
