At last, it is on. After months of milquetoast requests for developer Larry Silverstein to "do the right thing" and cede control of World Trade Center site development, Mayor Bloomberg upped the ante yesterday. Notable Mayoral quotables: "There's not any chance that this development can proceed as it's been going and not leave everybody high and dry." "We cannot have an economic scenario that leaves everybody high and dry and somebody walking away with hundreds of millions of dollars after a few years." Okay—high and dry. Got it. Still: girlfight!
