Save the stairs

The World Trade Center Vesey Street staircase, which provided a path of escape for hundreds (if not thousands) of people on the morning on September 11, 2001, has been listed by the National Trust for Historical Preservation as one of America's 11 Most Endangered Places.

We think the stairs are worth saving, as part of the history of what happened that day and one of the only pieces of the towers that still stand.

The National Trust suggests that people send letters to the officials (including Mayor Bloomberg, Governor Pataki and Governor Corzine) involved in the reconstruction effort asking them to incorporate the stairs in the design on the new buildings (click on the link, the letters are already written for you).

While you're at it, ask Governor Corzine to help save the Doo Wop motels in Wildwood, New Jersey.
