The Epic Tale of Rebuilding Ground Zero

On Tuesday, November 15, members of the Columbia Business School Alumni Club/NY and the New York Metro CCIM Chapter came together for a lively and compelling presentation by Columbia Business School Professor Emerita, Lynne Sagalyn, on the challenges associated with the reconstruction of Ground Zero.
As Dr. Sagalyn pointed out, the rebuilding of Ground Zero was fraught with strategic consequence, for the City of New York and for the nation.   Her discussion gave insight into the 10+ years of rebuilding the 16 acre site, with particular emphasis on the people and personalities who wanted to put their mark on this monumental project. For those wanting to learn more, Professor Sagalyn's book on the subject may be purchased at
Many thanks to Craig Evans, CCIM for arranging Chapter participation in this informative and entertaining event.
