Can you please let me know when the search area was expanded to include the World Financial Center? This is an extremely active area and I do not recall work ever being performed there. Also where there additional areas searched that have not been listed on any previous plans? Also since we continue to find remains from the roof of the Cedar Street location has the city considered re-searching the other surrounding rooftops as we have suggested.

Finally can we please have an update as to the status of identifications from the new search and the old search? We have asked repeatedly for this information but have gotten no response.

If possible please use the format below as a template.


Total Remains


785 - Deutsche Bank
209 - Manholes
409- Haul road (including 3 from 39th Street Facility)

14 - Rooftop 130 Cedar
13 - DEP Subterranean Structure under the Haul Road
12 - Subterranean outside WTC site

Subject: WTC Recovery Update for Friday, September 21, 2007

On Friday, September 21, 2007, five (5) potential human remains* were recovered from Cedar Street and one (1) potential human remain* was recovered from the World Financial Center. Work will resume on Monday, September 24. Thanks. Ellen

*The number of potential human remains found is subject to revision as we determine through laboratory analysis and testing whether or not the fragments are of human origin. We will release the updated numbers monthly, while continuing to release the potential number daily.
