RECOMMENDED: See all September 11 memorial events
The Associated Press released a video this morning showing progress inside the building, and it seems like things are coming along. Large artifacts—such as original steel columns from the Twin Towers, or the "survivor's staircase" (which connected the World Trade Center to Vesey Street, and was used by people in the building to escape during the September 11 attacks)—have been placed. The museum is now working on getting smaller artifacts and exhibits set up, as well as making sure the basics (lighting, flooring) are taken care of.
