They are worried about the spray causing ice on West Street. The south pool is further from the street so they can leave it on.

Actually they are both on right now. It depends on the wind.

WTC Museum Exhibits Set for Spring Opening

New additions to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum are now in place within the expansive underground complex, which is slated to open in May 2014. From a partially destroyed FDNY ambulance, to original World Trade Center observatory signs, to an intact bike rack with bicycles still locked on, artifacts of all sizes and from all corners of the site are part of now near-complete exhibitions filling out the museum's 110,000 square feet.

Museum officials recently shared a construction progress report, releasing new exhibit images and expounding on the interactive and multimedia features that will help tell the story of the WTC history, events of September 11th, and the long recovery process at Ground Zero.

In addition, a $24 general-admission fee will be implemented to visit the Museum. However, there also will be discounts for seniors, youth, and local schools, with free admission every Tuesday from 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Family members of WTC victims also will have free access at all times.

"Following a decision made by the Board to ensure the organization's financial health, the 9-11 Memorial will charge an admission to the Museum to help fund the necessary operational costs," said Joe Daniels, Memorial president. "The 9-11 Memorial does not yet receive government support for ongoing operations as many other important museums of our national history do.

"A general-admission ticket of $24 will help fulfill our obligation to commemorate and preserve the history of 9-11 [and] enable educational programming," he continued. "Museum admissions also will ensure that the Memorial, which has had more than 11.5 million visitors since opening two years ago, will be free and open to everyone."

Some news on the restoration of the streetscape from http://lowermanhattan.info/construct...oject_updates/

Quote:
After several years spent coordinating heavy construction alongside the World Trade Center site, finally the New York State Department of Transportation (SDOT) is restoring that section of West Street. The agency shared West Street Promenade Phase 2 project updates at the February Community Board 1 Planning Committee meeting, with representatives noting that the overall completion of the Promenade, between Albany and Vesey Streets, is expected by spring 2016.

SDOT crews began building the permanent frontage of the WTC Memorial early this year, with steps being installed between the plaza and the future West Street eastern sidewalk. (A "frontage" is the buffer area between the roadway and a building line, including sidewalk, curb, trees, lighting, bollards, etc.)

That work, active from Liberty to Fulton, is expected to conclude around July 2014, a few months after the WTC Museum opens in mid-May. Meanwhile, the Port Authority has ramped up its own frontage work outside 1 WTC, continuing on the west side of the tower through late spring 2014.

Across West Street, SDOT will begin restoring the frontage of 1 World Financial Center (WFC), between Albany and Liberty in Battery Park City (BPC), through late spring. That streetscape then will lead into the next frontage-construction phase outside 2 and 3 WFC, between Liberty and Vesey Streets. The entire west-side frontage area is slated for completion in summer 2015 -- which also will bring the restoration of the bikeway and walkway.

The Liberty Street pedestrian bridge also will return to its permanent configuration across West Street by approximately early 2015, when the new Liberty Park opens just south of the WTC. That bridge-landing relocation will then allow SDOT crews to move the pilings now occupying areas of West Street, and complete final median reconstruction along the highway.

At the CB1 meeting, committee members advocated for installation of permanent left-turn lanes along West Street in both directions at both Liberty and Albany Streets, citing a substantial increase in traffic to both BPC and Greenwich South neighborhoods. SDOT representatives are collaborating with other agencies to determine the best options, and how to safely queue truck traffic from West Street into the future WTC Vehicular Security Center entrance on Liberty Street.

I don't know if it was mentioned or asked here already but I'm assuming families of the casualties of 9/11 will get some sort of lifetime pass for the museum? I can't imagine asking them to pay a fee to enter the museum which in also a memorial.

Yes families get in for free as well as small children. It will also be free to the general public one day of the week for a few hours in the evening...

What are they doing to the canopy over the pavilion entrance? They seem to be replacing all the roof panels.

9/11 Museum To Open May 21, After Week of Private Viewing


http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/0...te_viewing.php
Quote:
The National 9/11 Museum will finally open on May 21, AP reports. Preceding admission to the general public, victims' family members, rescue workers, and others directly affected by the attack will have a week of free, 24-hour-a-day access to the museum. The museum made waves two months ago when officials announced that adult admission would run at $24. The high price tag comes as part of the museum's $63 million operating budget that allows it to remain an entity that survives without government support, despite the museum board and city officials' attempts to secure federal funding. The museum will always be free for relatives of September 11 victims and rescue and recovery workers.

The museum is comprised of two core exhibitions at the foundation of the World Trade Center complex. One exhibition, In Memoriam, pays tribute to the 2,983 men, woman, and children who lost their lives on September 11 and in the February 26, 1993 bombing of the site, NYDN reports. The other exhibition will tell the story of what happened on 9/11 at the three attack sites and around the world. New York Magazine reports that about 8,000 unidentified remains will be moved from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to an off-limits area of the museum and kept behind a wall inscribed with a line from the Roman poet Virgil: "No day shall erase you from the memory of time."
