Note: Ms. Geller reminds us, the key points here are the historical, architectural & cultural significance of the site. Point out the significance of the Property in light of the 9/11 attacks, given the properties' proximity to Ground Zero and the fact that pieces of one of the planes landed in the building. It was part of the attack. The landing gear of one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center Towers flew into the Burlington Coat Factory building and fell through the roof to the basement. The fact that the committee ignores that fact is outrageous, and disrespects the victims of 911. [Emphasis my own]

The building's ironwork was crafted by the famous architect Daniel D. Badger, known also for his famous foundry and Architectural Ironworks. Continue reading Pam Geller’s content for more background, photos and relevance of the historical significance of Mr. Badger’s work in Manhattan.
