Both pools are lit up right now, but I still haven't seen the center voids lit yet.

So much for that swirl effect being gone in time for full operation. Disappointing.

Absolutely beautiful pictures! I think im about to cry :') Will that stunning green grass eventually cover all of the ground around the pools? and will that roadway between the WTC and the World Financial Center be fixed? It looks a bit curvy and the barren (no landscaping) compared to the rest of it.. or is it meant to be that way??

No the grass won’t cover all the ground the pools; most of the grass for the site has already been placed. As for the roadway yes it will be fixed. it will straitened back out and have landscaping once it is finished but there is still work on the WTC and WFC side that needs to be done before the road shifts to its final position.

In preparation for the 9-11 services, there was earthquake damage to repair on the Washington Cathedral, and now another disaster happened!

Look!!

We're still awaiting a press conference of Michele Bachmann to explain why God did this...

Umm, okay...?

Anyway, I still haven't seen the center voids lit up yet. Or will they not be lit?

Will this memorial remain open after September 11, 2011? Or will it close and re-open at a future date because there is a lot of heavy construction going around.

Reservation is needed. You can get a visitor pass at the 9/11 Memorial's website

I've just been over on the 1 WTC thread and see many people who haven't usually followed this project are visiting with all the publicity at this time...10th anniversary. I live about as far away as you can be on Earth yet feel like I visit New York every day.....and particularly this site. When I talk to people here I am surprised how many mention 9/11 ? There has been TV doco's over the past week and nearly every day articles in the newspapers. Many are surprised to see a giant skyscraper under construction !!!! What did they expect...? I then take the time to explain as best I can the history since 9/11......I have one of the 'Flags of Honour' names engraved with all those lost. I will take it to work tomorrow to show many people who feel loss......I feel loss yet know New York and the USA are at the heart of it all. I know I repeat to some but after visiting the WTC in 2000, watching live TV all night here in Australia during the 11th and here 12th of September 2001 and then returning to New York for the 2007 anniversary where I spent most of that day at Ground Zero, I am with you all....and wish I could be there in reality.
