While we await the big reveal on the new skyscraper designs at Ground Zero later this week, glad tidings from the vicinity of The Pit: the Tribute Center on Liberty Street is slated to open on schedule (this weekend to victims' families, and the following Saturday to the general public). Against regulations, photographer Brian Van sneaks a peek, and via the Curbed Photo Pool, files this crucial update: "It looks like our memorial fax machine is now up and running." A more fitting tribute to Snohetta's downsized dream, one cannot imagine.
