Governor Pataki Announces Start of Construction on Two New Interim Memorial Projects for Families and Visitors to the World Trade Center Site

Governor George E. Pataki today joined with victims' families, survivors, rescue workers, and Lower Manhattan employees and residents to announce the start of construction on two important interim memorial initiatives. StoryCorps, the acclaimed oral history project, is opening a recording booth in the World Trade Center PATH station that will record audio reminiscences from September 11th family members, friends, survivors, visitors, and rescue workers about those lost on September 11th, 2001 and in the 1993 bombings. The Tribute Center, located directly across from the World Trade Center site at 120 Liberty Street, will be dedicated to educating the public about September 11th. While the World Trade Center memorial is being built over the next four years, these two initiatives will serve as additional settings to remember loved ones, the events of September 11th, and the ensuing rescue and recovery efforts through firsthand accounts. The World Trade Center Memorial, Reflecting Absence, will break ground early next year and open in 2009. More »
