Host Bob Edwards talks to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg about his first few months in office. Bloomberg presides over a city that faces a $5 billion budget deficit and is still experiencing the consequences of the Sept. 11 attacks. Asked about his preference for what to do with the World Trade Center site, Mayor Bloomberg says he favors mixed use: a combination of residential, commercial, and office space, built around a suitable memorial.
