Union Posterboy Larry Silverstein Really Rubbing It In

New, 9 comments

Earlier this week, in the wake of the Port Authority's announcement of further World Trade Center delays and cost overruns, 7 World Trade Center and Towers 2, 3 and 4 developer Larry Silverstein issued a statement that said, "As of today, my company's projects – Towers 2, 3 and 4 – are fully designed and on schedule." It was the ultimate Nelson Muntz-style "Ha-Ha" moment. And now that a strike by concrete mixer drivers has pretty much stalled work at the Port Authority's (for now, anyway) Freedom Tower, we can't help but have a laugh at this billboard near Penn Station, celebrating Larry Silverstein, his union ties and his ability to actually get something built at Ground Zero. Do you think he also wipes his tush with Port Authority press releases?
