Thank you for the amazing photos, Streetscraper. I'll certainly have to visit this memorial in person as well.

But those are not the original footprints of the towers, or are they?

Seeing the pic showing the original box column locations shows why the memorial waterfalls are slightly inside the tower footprints. I think the first row of trees around the fountains are about the facade line of the original towers. Down below seeing parts of the towers unmoved just where they were installed in the 1960's would be a solemn experience. I hope to revisit this site one day...I really hope I can ? Not that it is of more or less significant I wonder why the surviving but damaged 'sphere' sculpture is not in this museum ? It was a very focal item at the foot of the towers. I personally wish it could have been relocated to its original location...anyway all exhibits here are significant in their own way...

The sphere just may be relocated to the Liberty Park, which is on top of the Vehicle Security Center.

No idea, but I noticed that too earlier today. Lots of umbrellas/parasols in that crowd.

The panic I had looking at that picture thinking it was the queue to get in! I'm going to be there at some point next week and thought that is what I'd be in!

Wow, they even turned off the lights in the plaza. That's not normal.
