From Grief to Shopping! Over the West Side Highway

In the pedestrian corridor that bridges Ground Zero and the World Financial Center, amidst the solemn reminders of tragedy, there are signs that read "SHOP" and "DINE." Blogger Amy Langfield is not amused:

They're hung from the ceiling, the only accoutrements in the drafty, industrial corridor.
