NEW YORK — As the city looks past the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, community members and officials say a future performing arts center is vital to the continued rebirth of the World Trade Center site and downtown area.

"Between now and the 10th anniversary, the focus will be on getting the memorial open and preparing for the anniversary, but as we get to this fall, everyone's going to say, 'What is the next step?' and 'How do you fully round out the site?'" said state Sen.

NYC’s TV boom

NY Post editorialized on the state's film tax credit, which creates thousands of jobs for New Yorkers and helps boost our economy.

Hollywood it ain’t, but New York now has 23 prime-time TV shows filming inside the city -- a record for the Big Apple.

And it’s not just cop dramas: Even shows set in other cities are taping here, including HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” (Atlantic City) and CBS’ “The Good Wife” (Chicago).

The trick?

Producers have been pouring in since the state first offered a 30 percent tax credit to TV and film studios in 2004.

It’s a welcome twist in a city where high taxes have been driving residents and businesses away for decades.
