To The Editor:
Regarding your article on the new World Trade Center tower (news article, Dec. 23 - 29, 2003, "Wind and light for W.T.C. tower"), is anyone else concerned that the tower, and the entire W.T.C. will once again, be totally immune from all N.Y.C. Building and Fire Dept. codes?
What about another restaurant on top, an idea that was harshly criticized as a dangerous idea by fire professionals the first time around?
Has anyone consulted with the F.D.N.Y., fire safety academics, evacuation specialists and antiterrorist construction experts? How many times does history have to repeat itself before we learn from past mistakes?
Why is Gov. Pataki allowing the Port Authority to once again construct buildings that are above the law, and for which nobody can be held responsible? Didn't we learn anything from 9/11/01 and why are our elected officials allowing this to happen?
