...though the “Tribute in Light” is slated to go dark after this year, organizers and officials say they are determined to see that the makeshift memorial doesn’t disappear.
“New Yorkers would like to see it go on,” said Frank E. Sanchis III, senior vice president at the Municipal Art Society, which organizes the commemoration. “And so would I. We are approaching the future very straightforwardly.”
The contract that the Municipal Art Society has with the Lower Manhattan Developement Corp. to produce the remembrance ends this year, because both believed five years ago that the work on Ground Zero would be largely completed by now.
Sanchis added that he believed it is likely that his group and the LMDC would reach an agreement to continue the project next year and possibly beyond.
