We heard years ago, that Silverstein blew up the WTC so as to make lots of insurance money. well, let's look at just how much money he got from insurers, and the total cost today of the new WTC construction. Silverstein was awarded $4.4 billion due to the destruction of the two towers. http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424127887323993804578614292502152144 total cost of new WTC construction to date? $14.8 billion. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...r-project-cost-to-be-at-lower-end-of-estimate let me repeat that number: $14.8 BILLION!!!! and guess what? the work and the payments still ain't done. WTC 2 is barely done yet, expected completion in 2021 WTC 3 aint done yet, expected completion in 2018 WTC 5????? who the hell knows. Performing Arts Center??? who the hell knows. so yeah, more than $12 billion spent, and still not finished. so tell us again, how this was a big ol' payday for "Lucky" Larry.
