    16 Acres

    Sunday September 7, 2014 / 3 – 4:30 pm

    The rebuilding of Ground Zero is the most architecturally, politically, and emotionally complex construction project in recent American history. 16 Acres is the inside story of how and why this historic project got built. At the heart of the story is the dramatic tension between noblest intentions, the desire to “get it right,” and the politics, hubris and ego that is the bedrock of New York City.
