H2whoa! What we have here is a full-scale mock-up of one corner of the waterfalls that are part of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center. The 30-foot sample is inside the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and because the Navy Yard is a mysterious land of secrets, proof of the mock-up's existence came filtering down from the Kansas City Star via the 9/11 Memorial's Twitter feed. The two waterfalls and their pools, occupying the footprint left behind by the Twin Towers, are supposed to be finished by the tenth anniversary of the attacks next year. Here's what they'll look like when completed.
