A me personalmente ha dato una grande emozione il veder tornare questi due tridenti al loro posto. Erano edifici, ma dietro quei due pezzi di metallo si nasconde così tanto dolore delle famiglie che hanno perso i loro cari...

First look at hubby's name on 9/11 memorial hits hard as workers begin installing bronze panels
BY ADAM LISBERG   
DAILY NEWS CITY HALL BUREAU CHIEF
Sunday, February 13th 2011, 4:00 AM




Finally, the World Trade Center is beginning to bear the names of those who died there.

These exclusive photographs obtained by the Daily News show workers installing the first of 152 bronze panels at the 9/11 memorial where the twin towers once stood.

By the time the memorial opens this fall - on the 10th anniversary of the attacks - almost 3,000 names will be emblazoned there in a permanent tribute to their memories.

"It just gave me the chills that Jeff's name is up there, because 10 years doesn't make the pain go away," Christie Coombs said after seeing the picture of her husband Jeffrey's name there.

"The permanence of it is a really hard reminder," added Coombs, 50, who lives in Abington, Mass., with their three kids. "Seeing this hits home that this is forever, and his name will be read by millions long after I'm gone."

Coombs' husband was on a business trip on American Airlines Flight 11 when it was hijacked.

His name appears next to those of two other Flight 11 passengers, David Kovalcin and Peter Hashem.

"This is going to be there when my kids have kids, and when their kids have kids," said Elizabeth Kovalcin, 46, of Hudson, N.H., who is raising their two girls.

"They can go and see their great-grandfather's name there," she said. "That means a lot to me."



The National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum has organized the names according to where the victims were on 9/11, as well as whether they worked together and other "meaningful relationships."

"This is undoubtedly the most meaningful part of the memorial," said memorial President Joe Daniels. "In advance of the 10th anniversary, we will be sharing with victims' families the arrangement of the names of those who were killed."

The six people who died in the 1993 bombing there will also be included.

The 10-foot-long bronze panels are being mounted around the pools that mark the footprints of the former towers, so visitors can touch their names - much like the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.

For now, the panels are protected from the nearby construction by layers of heavy cloth. When finished, they will be lit from below, heated in winter to prevent ice - and cooled in summer to keep the metal from burning visitors' hands.

Signs and other temporary memorials at Ground Zero bore the names of victims for years, as politicians and developers quibbled over how to rebuild.

Now that construction at the site is well underway, Christie Coombs said it's a relief to know the permanent memorial is almost completed.

"There's nothing nice about seeing his name there," she said. "It's an absolutely beautiful memorial. It's also heart-wrenching that my husband's name is part of it."

9/11 Memorial Access Will Be Limited
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: February 14, 2011


For years after the Sept. 11 memorial opens this fall, access will be limited, the president of the memorial foundation said on Monday.

Ultimately, visitors will be able to approach the memorial and its green spaces and cobblestone plazas from all sides. But for years, said Joe Daniels, the president of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, the memorial will be surrounded by the construction sites of skyscrapers and a transit hub, and visitors will be able to use only one entrance.

Organizers will observe strict capacity limits for safety reasons, Mr. Daniels said. Plans call for a limit of 1,500 visitors at a time, with special consideration given to relatives of Sept. 11 victims.

Visitors will have to sign up online for available spots and print tickets.

The foundation president presented details of the opening to a downtown Manhattan community board on Monday night.

The 1,776-foot 1 World Trade Center, formerly known as the Freedom Tower, is being built just northwest of the memorial site and will not open until 2013. Hundreds of trees will still need to be planted on the eight-acre memorial plaza after Sept. 11, 2011, and cobblestones will need to be filled in.

The transit hub will not be completed until at least 2015. Visitors from the general public will be allowed in Sept. 12, the day after a 10th-anniversary ceremony for invited guests.

The “vast majority” of the four million to five million visitors expected to visit the memorial the first year are expected to get in, Mr. Daniels said.

City Still Uncertain Over Plans for 9/11 Memorial Tour Buses
By Matt Dunning
UPDATED Feb. 17


In less than seven months, millions of visitors will begin flocking to the National Sept. 11 Memorial at the World Trade Center site—many of them traveling by tour bus.

That will mean a lot of buses heading for Lower Manhattan, yet the city has only a vague idea what to do with them.

Members of Community Board 1’s World Trade Center Redevelopment Committee on Feb. 14 got a chance to ask transportation and Memorial officials about their plans for all those buses; where they will they drop off tour groups, where they will park, and just how many buses the city’s streets can accommodate, in theory, as they rumble towards Downtown.

Committee members, to their dismay, learned the city is still trying to figure it out.

“There is no concrete plan being presented here tonight,” committee member and Battery Park City resident Tom Goodkind said. “We’d like to know how many buses will be in the area on a daily basis and where they’re going. If we don’t have a plan in place very shortly, we’re going to have problems.”

Indeed, the officials could say only that they were considering several possible drop-off and layover locations, and that they were “working on” placing way-finding signs and doing outreach to tour promoters.

“Our team’s primary objective has been to minimize the footprint, or better yet, the tire tracks of tour buses visiting the memorial and Lower Manhattan,” DOT Manhattan Borough Commissioner Luis Sanchez said, adding that tour companies will be strongly encouraged to shuttle passengers to destinations such as Long Island City or Liberty State Park in New Jersey, where visitors can use the subway, PATH train or ferry services to get to the Memorial.

Sanchez showed two maps marked with possible locations for bus drop-offs and interim parking zones. Potential drop locations, he said, could be set up anywhere east or south of the World Trade Center site, between Barclay and Albany Street and from Broadway to the West Side Highway.

Layover zones, which would remain in use until the underground Vehicle Security Center opens in late 2013, are being considered for almost anywhere west of Broadway from Warren Street to Battery Park.

“Nothing has been put on paper,” Sanchez said. “We will need to do a more detailed study once we know what the need will be.”

One possible location for a layover zone, Zuccotti Park, drew criticism from the committee because it would hem in one of the few open spaces in the area.

“It would be a shame to turn over Zucotti Park, which the community fought so hard to prevent from becoming a staging ground for the World Trade Center site, to now have it become a bus depot for three years,” committee chairwoman Catherine McVay Hughes said. She also lamented that the DOT failed to take into account buses, taxis and tour groups bound for Lower Manhattan sites other than the World Trade Center.

“It would be nice to see an overlay to see what those impact will be together,” McVay Hughes said.

Sanchez said it had not been determined how often, if at all, the park’s curb sides would be used to accommodate buses.

“It’s something that will need to be fleshed out,” Sanchez said. “Obviously the first priority is to assign them to Trinity and Church Street.”

City officials and Memorial staff are hoping that a timed reservation system, similar to the one used for the Statue of Liberty, will help lend some order to the deluge of visitors to the site. Joe Daniels, president and CEO of the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum, announced that passes to the plaza would only be available through advance purchase from the memorial or through select tour companies.

Daniels said companies that disobey city laws would be banned from selling tickets directly to customers.

Daniels also revealed that there would be just one access point to the plaza, requiring visitors to enter at Albany and Greenwich Streets and pass through a welcome center at 90 West Street.

Greenwich Street is still being planned as the primary route for tour buses to reach the Vehicle Security Center at the south end of the site, Sanchez said, though police officials have yet to decide whether security concerns will mean closing the street to vehicular traffic.

The committee also learned that there would be no charge for admission onto the Memorial’s plaza, and that victim’s family members would get first priority for reservations. Special consideration will likely also be given to Lower Manhattan residents, members of the military and first responders, but Daniels said that process has yet to be finalized.

22-02-2011




1st Quarter 2011

Museum Design Complete (by NS11MM)
NS11MM will issue the final design documents necessary to construct the interior portion of the Museum. This design includes all elements necessary to begin construction of the Museum exhibits, and represents the final design element of the Memorial program.

Museum Construction Begins
While core and shell work is already well underway on the Museum, interior fit-out work will begin in the first quarter of 2011. This work will include the initial framing of interior partitions and MEP systems necessary to construct all rooms and exhibit areas.

Substantial Completion of South Fountain
In the 1st Quarter, workers will complete the installation of the final pieces of stone and metal weir, and begin preparations for the start-up and testing of the South Fountain in preparation for 9/11/11.

Complete Installation of Two Sides of the Bronze Nameplates in the North Fountain
Installation of the Bronze Nameplates and their supporting structures will begin in early 2011. These plates, which will record the names of the victims of 9/11/01 and 2/26/93, will be etched and backlit from within the parapet housing. A glycol system will also be installed to keep temperature of the metal regulated at all times. The Port Authority has been coordinating with the 9/11 Memorial Foundation, who is closely overseeing this project.

Installation of the Large Major Museum Artifacts in the Museum Area
This milestone represents the installation of additional large artifacts recovered after 9/11/01, including a FDNY Fire Engine, a NYPD Police Car and a taxicab. These artifacts follow the “Last Column” and “Vesey Street Staircase” (also known as the “Survivor’s Staircase”) which have already been placed within the Museum’s walls. Given their size, all of these artifacts must be placed before the Memorial Plaza is permanently closed given that they are too large to fit in the Museum’s freight elevators. The Memorial Foundation has now decided to wait until the end of the 2nd Quarter to
place these artifacts. This timing was made available by construction of a temporary loading opening in the Memorial Plaza deck that can be quickly closed in the 3rd Quarter to enable final Memorial Plaza finishes to be constructed in that area.

Begin Installation of Pavilion Curtain Wall
The glass and metal cladding, representing the “skin” of the Pavilion structure, will begin to be installed during this period. Once complete, it will allow interior finish work to begin in the Pavilion. (At the time of the October 2008 Assessment, the Port Authority did not anticipate or commit to completing curtain wall construction by 9/11/11.)

Substantially Complete Fit-Out of East Spot Network
Providing power to the South Fountain, this element represents the last major electrical piece necessary to begin final testing of the South Fountain in advance of 9/11/11.



2nd Quarter 2011

Start Pavilion Curtain Wall
The Pavilion will be the main entrance to the 9/11 Museum. This original October 2008 assessment milestone is for beginning the installation of the curtain wall of the Pavilion structure. This ornate system of steel and glass will form the “skin” of the atrium, the area that houses the Tridents. Acceleration of the Memorial Plaza area and early construction of the pavilion steel will enable this milestone to be started in the 1st Quarter of 2011.

Complete Pavilion Core and Shell
Because of careful planning and execution, the core and shell of the Pavilion will be complete in the second quarter of 2011. This work will include the concrete, steel, exterior paneling and curtain wall installation. Reaching this milestone is significant in that it surpasses the Port Authority’s original commitment for 9/11/11 to provide completed steel only. Once this work is complete, interior fit out construction of the Pavilion will begin.

Begin Phase 4 of Plaza Construction
This final phase of plaza construction will be the last major are required to be complete for the Port Authority’s 9/11/11 commitments. Totaling approximately 27,000 SF, this phase had to be delayed to enable the accelerated completion of the Museum Pavilion’s steel erection and curtain wall installation. When finished, the portion of the Memorial Plaza committed to be open on 9/11/11 will be complete – an area totaling over 144,000 SF.

Complete Bronze Nameplate Installation in North Fountain
By the end of the second quarter, installation on all four sides of the North Fountain will be complete. These plates, which will record the names of the victims of 9/11/01 and 2/26/93, will be etched and backlit from within the parapet housing. A glycol system will also be installed to keep temperature of the metal regulated at all times. The Port Authority has been coordinating with the 9/11 Memorial Foundation, who is closely overseeing this project.

Test South Fountain
Following the successful testing of the North Fountain in the 4th Quarter of 2010, testing of the South Fountain will occur in the 2nd Quarter of 2011. Because of the successful efforts of the team on the North Fountain, work on the South Fountain is expected to progress more quickly. Successfully testing the South Fountain will ensure the Port Authority’s commitment of having both fountains operational by 9/11/11.

Complete West Vent Structure Cladding
The West Vent Structures provide ventilation to the below- grade Museum space. In the 2nd Quarter, the cladding system will be installed on both buildings. The system consists of anchors, steel beams and a wire like mesh that will wrap the exterior the structures.

LOWER MANHATTAN — The construction pit where the Deutsche Bank building used to stand won't remain empty for long.

The Lower Manhattan Development Corp. plans to turn the site into a gathering space for tourists visiting the 9/11 memorial, which is opening this fall. On Thursday morning, the LMDC board voted to allocate $800,000 to build a concrete plaza to welcome the tourists and distribute tickets to the memorial.
