Abstract (in English)

A number of significant buildings and works of art were damaged in the World Trade Center collapse. Cultural resources conservation has been sustained by existing documentation and local landmark protection. The Lower Manhattan Emergency Preservation Fund was formed to help restore the damaged cultural resources. A number of grants have been made and the work is ongoing. Cultural resources are potentially endangered by the rebuilding process, where expansion of the site, transportation projects, and proposed development call for demolition of historic buildings. Community, arts, and professional groups have joined to make their voices heard in the planning process.
