Article in today's New York Times -- Mayor Expands Search for 9/11 Remains, by David W. Dunlap:
The Bloomberg administration said yesterday that it would cast a net well beyond
ground zero, from Broadway to the Hudson River, from the bottom of manholes
to the top of nearby skyscrapers, in its search for human remains from Sept. 11, 2001.
The chief medical examiner is to inspect the roofs of the Millenium Hotel and 1
Liberty Plaza, opposite the World Trade Center site. Tiny bone fragments may be
found there, mixed in with the stone ballast, as they were atop the former Deutsche B
ank building, according to a report prepared for Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.
Key downtown redevelopment agencies have headquarters in the 53-story Liberty Plaza
tower. It is also where victims’ family members can visit privately in a room set aside
for them on the 20th floor.
