It should be an epic experience sitting by the illuminated waterfalls at night with the sound of the water in the background.

No. It's going to be taller. There is a lot of space between the second floor and the roof.

Iconic trident columns near a return to World Trade Center site, will be placed in planned museum
BY Douglas Feiden
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

Thursday, August 12th 2010, 4:00 AM



Hardhats wielding blowtorches Wednesday began the delicate task of welding two of the iconic steel tridents left standing after the destruction of the World Trade Center for their triumphal return to Ground Zero next month.

Burned and battered - but unbowed - the 70-foot-tall, 90-ton columns that once supported the 110-story south tower have been stored at Kennedy Airport's Hangar 17 out of public view for the past nine years

The pillars - a global symbol of Big Apple grit as they stood sentinel over the rubble and carnage of downtown - will be enclosed side-by-side within the glass entrance pavilion at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.

Too gargantuan to be moved to JFK intact, the tridents were initially cut in pieces at the site in 2002.

They are now being prepared for the move back downtown on flatbed trucks. The complex process involves welding them so they can be safely transported and then reassembled on the memorial site for installation in the museum atrium.
