NY Times letter

To the Editor:

The new plan for the "Freedom Tower," if built, would represent a monument to the victory of terror and fear over human freedom. Isolated from the city grid, perched on a fortress-like pedestal, hostile to strangers and closed to the outside, it is everything a free society and especially a free city is not.

Once upon a time, cities proudly proclaimed that "city air makes free." Now, we propose to build a cage and lock ourselves in it.
