Giuliani coordinated the response of various city departments, while organizing the support of state and federal authorities for the World Trade Center site.
The survivors' staircase, the 37 concrete steps that scores of people raced down to flee the World Trade Center attacks, was moved Thursday for the final time. A massive yellow crane hoisted the 22-foot-tall staircase into the air and placed it 150 feet away at the entrance to the future Sept. 11 museum." According to SaveTheStairway.org, "The Stairway stands as a uniquely important historical artifact, and a dramatic symbol of hope and survival." The NY Landmarks Conservancy played a great role in the rescue of this artifact: http://www.nylandmarks.org/programs_services/technical_assistance/projects/preserving_the_world_trade_center_site
