^ actually it stood more or less where this will be going (the visitor center, museum, or whatever it's called)

Not only that, but the plaza was initially about 15 feet or so above street level. Now, Greenwich street is simply street level. So to return the sphere to its exact initial spot, it would be in the middle of the street plus floating about 15 feet above the street.

Actually, even though its impossible to return it to its EXACT original spot, I think they should locate it in the grove at the northeast portion of the memorial plaza, which will be very very close to its original spot and still basically at the center of the overall complex. This is also the only spot in the memorial design which is open with no trees... it seems MEANT for the sphere.

I know it was said before but the museum does look like a building on it side. The sphere
should be place back at WTC, Where doesn't matter as long as it's there.

World Trade Center site needs more taxpayers dollars or else it will stop construction according to the Wall Street Journal: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123758929303200145.html

Yes it does. Freedom Tower is part of WTC complex. From article:

But if construction of the office towers doesn't proceed, the entire site could be plunged into further delays and uncertainty. The planned $3.2 billion transit hub relies on Mr. Silverstein's office towers for ventilation and fire exits. The Port Authority's $3 billion Freedom Tower would be unable to open as planned because its delivery ramps tie underground into the part of the site that Mr. Silverstein jointly controls with the Port Authority.

So they'd have to redo the delivery ramps if the worst possible situation happened. WTC 1 isn't going to stop construction without a taxpayer bailout, as you implied.

national911memorial.org just posted a link to a story stating that a 20-foot section of the North Tower's antenna will be incorporated into the museum. Awesome news, and best of all, they posted our first real rendering of the interior of the museum (in years)! Unfortunately, this is the largest that I could find of it anywhere on their site. If anyone comes across a larger rendering, please post it.



By the way, the URL of this picture, which shows the hall between the two footprints, refers to it as "grotto". So I guess that's what we're calling it now, the grotto.

If you are refering to the exposed re-bar etc. it's suposta look that way, that's where concrete beams well tie into the wall. The blue stuff is insulation to make keys for slabs and shear walls.

PS: Thanks for the pics, jwalas .
