It is exactly because the WTC is the grief of the survivors and of NYC in general that the rubble of the WTC should be used in the construction of the new buildings. If a memorial were to be built in the harbor, the rubble could be sunk into a form constructed of the framework from the wrecked towers. The rubble, after all, contains the remains of hundreds of victims. That way, it could all be preserved for the foreseeable future. It could be very spacious and have room for memorial, contemplation, plaques with the names of the victims, perhaps an auditorium. Then the footprints could be devoted to the future of NYC, with small memorials spaced throughout.
