there will be more trees and more bushes there eventually. The site is not even close to being finished.

Wondering why they don't turn on the already installed led lights below the second void, perhaps they're special for each aniversary?

I'm not sure if this belongs here....but does anyone know what they're building just South of the South Memorial pool?? Are they just adding access to the old walkway across West Side Hwy??? Still amazes me that thing ( the walkway over Westside Hwy) survived 9/11. Look how close it is to the South pool. Anyway, any info will help...thank you.

9/11 Museum Construction Grinds to Halt Amid $300M Fight

December 15, 2011 8:35pm | By Jill Colvin, DNAinfo Reporter/Producer

"LOWER MANHATTAN — Construction on the Sept. 11 Memorial Museum has “come basically to a halt” because of a bitter dispute over $300 million in cost overruns that Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday is on the verge of ending up in court.
The Port Authority now says that the National September 11 Memorial & Museum Foundation owes the amount for cost overruns at the site — nearly double the $156 million that sources said they were originally seeking.
Spokesman Steve Coleman said the new figure surfaced after a recent review of infrastructure spending.
“This is a dispute that has been ongoing for years," he said. "Last year, the issues became critical and the Port Authority is actively negotiating with the city to resolve it."
Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who serves as chair of the foundation, had already acknowledged the spat threatened to delay the museum's opening beyond its Sept. 2012 target date.
But on Thursday, he said the Authority had cut off payments to workers, halting construction...."

Ice in the pools today. According to the National Weather Service, the temperature today since midnight has ranged from 22°F (-5.6°C) to 30°F (-1°C). That doesn't seem to be low enough to cause icing considering that the water is moving, the sun was out, and (IIRC) they are heating the water. Then again, the dew point is currently 2°F (-16.5°C), so there may be quite a bit of evaporational cooling going on. I was surprised that they didn't run the north pool last winter to test their anti-icing measures.

That sucks. Sweet gum trees are very bright in the autumn as compared to Swamp Oaks
