As the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attack approaches, the World Trade Center site is starting to take shape. Two towers, including One World Trade Center, are climbing skyward, and the 9/11 memorial will be dedicated on September 11, 2011. Other towers, a performing arts center, and a transportation hub will eventually be completed. In this week's Arts File, Kerry Nolan speaks with New Yorker architecture critic Paul Goldberger to discuss how the design for the site came together and what it says about how New York has changed since 9/11.
