Remarkably, the World Trade Center memorial construction is on track for its scheduled opening in precisely one month: no small feat for a project that required seven years of red tape before breaking ground. Daily Intel spoke with Port Authority chief of staff Drew Warshaw, who admits that the day after the commemoration on September 11 will be the tricky part, especially with an estimated foot traffic rate of 1500 people per hour: "The real focus now is how we’re going to get the public on and off that site in a safe way when you’re still in the middle of the largest construction site in all of New York." Also, those two giant water features filling the void where the Twin Towers used to be? They're the largest man-made waterfalls in the US. [Daily Intel]
