Metropolis Executive Editor Martin Pedersen on architect Daniel Libeskind's presentation to the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation: "He was better than the best press secretary, the slickest politician. Libeskind called a question about the dangers of building retail space that looked like everyone else's retail space 'profound.' He dodged questions that he didn't want to answer by answering ones that he did. And when asked about how West Street would be resolveda dicey question that involves billions of dollars and, potentially, thousands of angry Battery Park residents-he disarmed us completely by outlining the limits of his power. 'That's a decision that goes higher up than the architect,' he replied."
