I thought that's what everyone has known....

It's in the renderings of the park.

There are still two trees left to be planted at the spot where the pavers were removed. I think they will do this once they have finished the northeast corner of the memorial plaza.

Excellent. I was hoping it was for trees. I know they showed trees there in the renders. Odd that they've waited until now.

Hear me out guys:



I think they should flatten the museum head-house into an elevated plaza and surround the pools with reconstructed facades. This would solve the wind, waves, early closing hours, and chlorine tree poisoning problems. It would also clearly demarcate memorial space from plaza space. Thoughts?

The museum entrance and screening area would be under the elevated plaza, with ample access along Greenwich Street. People could look down into the pools from the upper level, and enter the pool area from the lower plaza and the museum itself. The facade could have retractable gates so that it could be easily closed at night. It would also prevent the wind from blowing poisonous chlorine water onto the trees and bystanders.

So wait a minute, that water in the water pools of the memorial park of WTC are not drinkable?

So...what do you think they'll do with the dying trees at the North pool? Will they just leave it like that? I'd have opted for replacing them, but then again, the new ones might end up looking the same after a couple of weeks....

They replaced at least three of the trees last year along the north edge of the north pool when they also planted some where there hadn't been any yet. But all the trees along the north edge (as well as some next to Fulton) look terrible now.

Looks like they're finishing up on Fulton street.

Seems like the high price tag does not keep the people from visiting the museum..

I have to disagree with the high price tag. It takes a lot of money to maintain a museum of this caliber. The price is very competitive with other places in the city. I think maybe the worst offender price wise is the Intrepid. Check out bringing a family of four to visit there, and surcharges to see the Concorde, Space Shuttle, etc... It's really outrageous, IMO... Far less overhead than the 9/11 Museum, I would think... Like some of the other places (not ESB) they do offer a free time during the week. The 9/11 Museum is on Tuesday evenings. The MOMA is Friday evenings.. I forget the others.

The 9/11 Museum is spectacular! The exhibits themselves are so historical and emotional. The design is brilliant, it works so well. How we enter that final area, that has the slurry wall, after being in the area under the North Pool, is incredible, it allows you a peaceful, spacious area to absorb all of the things seen and emotions felt during your visit.

If you think the cost is too high, do a free Tuesday evening and afterwards ask yourself if it would be worth the money - $24/adult

It's also important to remember that this is a space that most people will likely only ever visit once, for the most part (until they decide to begin hosting special exhibitions, if they can ever figure out programming to make it "work").
