  • Controversy Surrounds NYPD's Security Plans for WTC By Daniel Muhlenberg | April 13, 2012

    After years of government infighting about construction costs at the September 11th Museum, it appears that subcontractors who have nothing to do with the dispute have been shouldering the weight. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Sept. 11 Memorial & Museum have been unable to agree upon who should pay for the ongoing construction at the landmark Manhattan museum, and, unsurprisingly, new construction at the site has almost ground to a halt – there’s virtually no chance that it will be open in time for the eleventh anniversary of the attacks. Even worse: according to one trade group leader, the two government giants have left subcontractors holding a $50 million bill.

    While construction of the civic buildings near the World Trade Center is at perpetual standstill, the World Trade Center retail construction project is on track to become part of the biggest indoor shopping mall in New York City.
