The Port Authority's "probabilistic" timetable for Ground Zero (vs. fantasy for AY)

The Times reports that Port Authority of NY/NJ Chairman Christopher Ward has reported back to Gov. David Paterson on the rebuilding plans at Ground Zero:
To cover his bets, Mr. Ward presented two dates for each project: a target date and a “probabilistic” date, based on computer analysis of all the many random things that might go wrong.

That's a bit more candid than saying "anticipate" or "anticipated," as developer Bruce Ratner and the Empire State Development Corporation have said.


  1. The reason for the candor? The Governor has made it clear that progress in Lower Manhattan is a priority, where everyone involved must be held accountable.

    It's hard to imagine the same for Bruce Ratner's highly controversial Atlantic Yards arena and high-rise project, for which timetables have been more promotional than "probabilistic."
