9/11 Family Members Renew Criticism of Memorial
Families of victims of the Sept. 11 terror attacks are renewing their criticism of the redevelopment of the World Trade Center site.
On Sept. 10, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the land, reached agreement with the foundation that operates the planned Sept. 11 museum.
The deal gives the foundation the land for the museum, in exchange, the Port Authority takes over the site of the former Deutsche Bank building.
Port Authority executive director Patrick Foye said at Thursday’s monthly meeting that the deal doesn’t change terms from an agreement from 2006.
Sally Regenhard of Yonkers, whose son died on Sept. 11, told board members that the land swap is illegal and that she and other family members will push for a Congressional investigation. .
