Gov. Pataki has promoted Stefan Pryor as President of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation to succeed Kevin Rampe.
Pryor is among several Yalies involved at Ground Zero.
According to the Yale Daily News:
In 2002 the LMDC appointed School of Architecture professor Alexander Garvin ‘62 ARC ‘67 vice president of planning, design and development. Two of his former students, Andrew Winters ARC ‘94 and Christopher Glaisek ARC ‘96, work on the design and development staff. Stefan Pryor ‘93 LAW ‘98 serves as Deputy to the Chairman and Chief-of-Staff.
Garvin resigned from his position on the LMDC in 2003 to devote more of his time to his classes at Yale, the New York City Planning Commission and New York City’s 2012 Olympic bid, he then told the New York Daily News. As a member of the New York City Planning Commission, Garvin remains influential in the rebuilding of the World Trade Center, Harpman said.
Garvin teaches “Introduction to the Study of the City” in Yale College and teaches in the School of Architecture.
Maya Lin who was the most famous of the juror members is a Yalie.
