There's a lot of those prefab arches up already. At least 32 and at least 7 to go.

Well, considering the magnitude of the project you can't really say there is so much activity. I mean, where are all them gone? I see trucks, machinery etc but I don't see as many persons down there. It's just me or it's due to a process that is slowing? Can we consider the building pace of the FT affected as the rest of the constructions? Any further delay announcement on FT as well? Sorry, couldn't avoid asking.

Got this email today from the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center
http://www.national911memorial.org/

July 2008 Update
First Artifact Placed Within the Foundations

Dear <deleted>:

A milestone moment in the creation of the National September 11 Memorial Museum occurred this month as the first non-in situ historic artifact was delivered to the Museum site: the monumental Vesey Street Stairs. The artifact is commonly referred to as the “Survivor’s Stairway” because it served as a vital route to safety for thousands fleeing the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Beginning in the middle of the night on Friday, July 18, and continuing throughout the heat of the following day, dedicated crews at the World Trade Center site labored to transport and position this 21 foot high, 64 foot long concrete remnant. As 25 construction professionals, conservators, structural engineers, and Memorial & Museum staff kept careful watch, the Stairs, securely set within a flatbed transporter truck, passed under a nearby pedestrian overpass crossing the West Side Highway with a mere four inches of clearance. Weighing some 116,000 pounds, the Stairs were then lifted by the single cable of a 500-ton crane, pivoted, and lowered more than 70 feet to bedrock. Now safely placed within the foundations of the Memorial & Museum, the Stairs will be repositioned in the coming months for their final installation.

The Stairs provide a powerful reference to the survivors’ story and reinforce a fundamental message: every one of us lives in a post-9/11 world, and, in that sense, every one of us is a survivor of September 11. We look forward to keeping you updated on our progress.

Joe Daniels
President and CEO

Alice M. Greenwald
Memorial Museum Director



Looks like the site has become a true museum now

That is great news!

History cannot allow future generations to forget what happened in our own generation.

Now, if they can only rebuild those twin towers will we have a living memorial.
