While a realistic completion date for the World Trade Center memorial remains hard to nail down, another downtown memorial?at the African Burial Ground?is under construction and set to be done by this October, according to a feature this week on the LMDC's LowerManhattan.info site. It's located at Duane and Elk streets, a few blocks behind City Hall. Rodney Leon's winning design, chosen last April, is rendered above. Any live shots from the construction site are always welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.

UPDATE: A reader writes: "Don't expect many pictures of this - photos are not allowed to be taken in the area due to security concerns for the two federal buildings and three courthouses in the area."
