Not a mayor notice, yet inspiring.

From the Memo Blog, NS11MM
http://blog.national911memorial.org/?p=5594

“A penny saved is a penny earned.” Benjamin Franklin’s famous quote could not be more appropriate when it comes to 13-year-old Patrick Briscoe’s recent penny-fundraising campaign.

A seventh-grade student of Newtown, Conn., Briscoe has taken it upon himself to raise money , one penny at a time, to purchase a cobblestone, which will form the pathways on the national 9/11 Memorial’s plaza. “Forget Me Not Pennies 9/11 Memorial Fund name is based on the fact that if we all contribute pennies, they can be combined for a greater good,” Briscoe said as reported in the Newtown Bee.

So far his campaign has exceeded all expectations, soliciting pounds of coins from locals and even from Sandy Hook, Conn., resident John Sansburn. “I’ve had this five-gallon container forever,” Sansburn said. “I moved here from Michigan in 1996, and had lived in Canada before that, and I’ve been dumping pennies in a jug all along.”

To date, Briscoe has raised $348 and has decided to collect 50,000 pennies, or enough to donate to the museum for a memorial glade cobblestone, which will be placed in a small clearing in a grove of trees for gatherings and special ceremonies. The National September 11 Memorial & Museum is thankful for Brisoce’s efforts as they are inspiring to his peers and people of all ages. Find out more about donating a cobblestone here.

I wonder if the pavilion will double as a vent structure? Kind of looks like it:

I've been worried about the roof for a few months now, but remain optimistic that it will look as good as the renders.

Are those little steel constructions along the northern edge of the roof (right hand side of the picture) for placing the cladding? Definately looks so!

That'd be my guess.

The recent pictures and Earthcam show that forms have gone up on the west and east sides of this structure. So it must be permanent. It will be most interesting to see how the roof turns out. Maybe it will serve as an observation platform, perhaps just for the families of survivors or special occasions.

It could be clearer. Now, itís a bit confusing and insufficient. That temporary structure in the north side has to go. The Center for Performing Arts should be given preference. I heard that itís still in the planning phase. And, I wonder where they will put up the Deutsche Bank. That place used to be my favorite.

World Trade Update: Glass Rising

Monday, March 28, 2011 | Tom Stoelker

Itís been a couple of weeks since we stopped by the WTC site. The most striking aspect from the street remains the speed with which glass surfaces begin to rise. It seems like only yesterday that three stories of glass wrapped around Tower One. Now with ten stories completed, the quartz-like surfaces start to take shape. At the Memorial Museum, Snohettaís glass has flown up in what seems a matter of days. The facade already reflects the grove, whose trees continue their own march toward West Street.
