Spring is definitely the season of new beginnings. But this May has been a month of historic new starts.

For the first time in 12 years, Americans, and specifically New Yorkers, can take a deep breath and realize that the dark shadow of a lost World Trade Center is lifting from our city: the crowning spire of the new Freedom Tower is in place, beginning a new era of prosperity in lower Manhattan.
I'm sure you can remember moments over the past 7 years - moments in your life in direct comparison with the construction of our new Freedom Tower. I perceived the progress of the building as a figure of progress in different areas of my life. Almost as a constant evolution of me, my city and my world.
As we move forward, we realize that a void has been filled, our skyline has returned. Optimism has officially made a comeback. This is the beginning of something great.
Until next time, best regards.
