Lynne Sagalyn's chapter from Contentious City reviews the emotionally charged planning for the redevelopment of the WTC site between September 2001 and the end of 2004. Though we do not yet know how these plans will be realized, we can nonetheless examine how the initial plans emerged—or were extracted—from competing ambitions, contentious turf battles, intense architectural fights, and seemingly unresolvable design conflicts.
