Snow removal equipment ready and waiting. Hopefully there will be one good snowfall this season and photographers will get some really good shots (daytime and nighttime) of the memorial dressed in white. However, may the majority of the winter be unusually warm, dry, and calm so that there is good progress made on the rest of the WTC projects.

9/11 Museum Is Delayed
Port Authority, Foundation Spar Over Escalating World Trade Center Expenses

By JENNIFER MALONEY AND ELIOT BROWN
"The planned 2012 opening of the Sept. 11 museum at the World Trade Center is in jeopardy amid a dispute over hundreds of millions of dollars in unexpected costs related to redeveloping the site, people familiar with the matter said.

Construction on the sprawling museum has slowed considerably since September, when the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey stopped approving new contracts and extensions of existing contracts, people familiar with the matter said. Its planned September 2012 opening will likely be pushed back, the people said.

The $800-million-plus project is the latest pressure point in a series of funding disputes at the World Trade Center site, where the redevelopment tab has reached more than $11 billion.

The fight puts the Port Authority—controlled jointly by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie—at odds with the administration of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the chairman of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum foundation.

Fueling the battle is $156 million that the Port Authority—which is building the museum—says the foundation owes for construction costs. Port Authority officials have said privately they are concerned about the museum having enough money to finish the job, people familiar with the dispute said.

The foundation denies it is responsible for the cost overruns, and for its part believes it is owed more than $100 million on account of delays, a person familiar with the matter said.

The two sides are negotiating a set of conditions for arbitrating the dispute outside of court...."

In order to accommodate visitors while the Memorial is surrounded by ongoing construction on other World Trade Center projects, we have instituted a timed reservation system. The easiest and quickest way to make a reservation is online. Please note that our website reflects actual inventory.

Does anyone know what temperature they keep the pools at? I think I'd like to go for a swim if it's warm enough

Is the survivor tree placed in a random spot or is that where it was found?

The callery pear tree was planted in the 1970s between the buildings four and five near Church Street. It needed to be relocated for obvious reasons.

I have a feeling the museum will never be opened because too many artifacts associated with it will be proven fake.
