The last row of trees have been planted next to the east and north sides of the north vent structure.

There is a LOT of water in the center void of the south pool. Look at how far it comes up the access door, which is open. (North pool void for comparison.)

There must be an inner access door that is closed, preventing the water from flooding the pump area.

Yes, in some of the documentaries about the museum, you see a big submarine-like hatch that swings inward into the pump room and a second door which swings outward which seems to be just to hide the main door.

But what's up with the tree sitting west of the vent structures. It's sat there for a couple weeks now at least. There's spots available around the Pavilion after all.

Strange.

I've been wondering about that tree too. Looking at the KPI archive, it's been there since July 14th. Another one of those head-scratchers.

"Workers pressure clean inside the North pool waterfall as work continues on the National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center site in New York, July 28, 2011. The memorial is scheduled to be dedicated on September 11, 2011, the 10th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center." REUTERS/Mike Segar

So maybe this was the final cleaning and north pool testing is completed?! Otherwise cleaning would be useless, right?

They've been powerwashing the pools for weeks. I'm sure once everything is up and running they will periodically turn off the pools to clean them.

I'm really skeptical on them claiming they will have that area of the memorial finish and done. Theres only 41 days left. :/

It'll be open. But I don't think it'll be too pleasant. Long waiting lines, loud construction noises, fenced in like cattle, very crowded...

I doubt even a year from now it'll be much better. Maybe in 2013 things will be better.

Concrete worker walk-outs at WTC prompt rumors of strike
August 01, 2011 03:30PM

Hundreds of unionized cement and concrete workers have walked off the job at the World Trade Center site in response to the cement league trying to cut their pay by up to 20 percent, NY1 reported.

The walk-out may spell a strike, since the concrete workers have been working without a contract since July 1, but the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey says it will have no effect on the Sept. 11 memorial construction schedule.

"It's a horrible situation, you know? We built this city and they want to take money away from us, in this bad economy," said John Hardt, a member of the Cement and Concrete Workers Union.

A spokesperson for the Cement League said negotiations are ongoing.

Concrete workers stopped working on the WTC transit hub at Tower 1, the Wall Street Journal said.

The stoppage will have "no impact on construction of the 9/11 Memorial, which remains on track to open on the 10th anniversary [of the attacks], and minimal impacts on the site's other projects," said Steve Coleman, a spokesperson for the Port Authority.

NY Post's Andrea Peyser: Atheists Can To Go To Hell


(AP/Mark Lennihan)

NY Post columnist Andrea Peyser says the atheists suing to remove the 9/11 Cross from the World Trade Center museum should go somewhere they don't believe exists. "These atheists can go straight to hell," she declares in the lede of today's column, which addresses the controversy over the miracle cross, comprised of two intersecting steel beams found in the Ground Zero rubble. In their lawsuit, the atheists claim the cross is causing them "dyspepsia, symptoms of depression, headaches, anxiety, and mental pain and anguish," but Peyser just doesn't have any sympathy for their suffering. "I'm Jewish," she writes. "And I think it's beautiful."

Reached by phone, American Atheists President David Silverman told Peyser, "They have this T-joint that looks like a cross, and essentially deified it. They made it into a Christian icon." But unfortunately for him, Silverman was driving during the interview, and at one point he loses his temper behind the wheel, teaching Peyser "all I needed to know about atheists and their lack of belief." She reports that Silverman shrieked suddenly and yelled, "God damn it! I hate this Newark so much!... Don't put in the paper that I said God damn it!" Slip of the tongue—he really meant to say Atom damn it!

^ what is the coriolis effect?

Also I dunno about the rest of you, but I'm not really enjoying the color of that water in the pool with the sun reflecting off of it. It looks like dirty sewage water in those pics.
