WTC Memorial Board of Directors Formed

Good news today, problematic bureaucracy tomorrow.

The Board of Directors has been announced for the WTC Memorial Foundation. The non-profit corporation will be responsible for construction and operation of the Memorial, as well as the museum underneath the memorial.

Included on the Board: honorary members Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush, business leaders like JP Morgan Chase and CEO William B. Harrison Jr., victims’ family members, art leaders like MOMA President Emeritus Agnes Gund, media leaders like Michael Eisner and Robert DeNiro, but noticeably no neighborhood leaders.

Will DeNiro kick everyone’s ass? Will anyone take Michael Eisner seriously? stay tuned…

Fundraising efforts will begin this Spring with a goal of $500 Million.
