Giuliani Wants Larger 9-11 Memorial

Thursday, 26 June 2003 12:00 AM

The New York Daily News says Giuliani wants to nearly double the size of the planned Ground Zero memorial, saying the "sacred ground" within the site's retaining walls -- about 9 acres -- should be preserved to honor those killed on Sept. 11, 2001.

The former mayor, in a video being presented to Congress by a coalition of victims' families, says: "If it takes federal legislation to preserve it, then that's what should happen."

He says the area where the twin towers, 6 World Trade Center and the Marriott hotel stood should be set aside for a memorial, not for commercialization. It was in that area where most of the nearly 2,800 victims' remains were recovered.

Giuliani adds: "Forty, 50, 60 years from now, people are going to be very, very annoyed with us if we don't handle it correctly.
