    I just found out how much security I'll have to go through just to get down there, so I doubt that I'll be able to bring my camera with me :mumbles:

    Went down into the WTC pit today... what a sight! That's one big ramp to walk down! All sorts of construction going on down there. Apparently, the security wasn't as tight as I thought it would be. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me If I get lucky enough and get to go back into the city later this week, I'll definitely try to go back down there and get some pics.

    The company that invited us down there is doing all the infrastructure work for pretty much the entire site. I also found out that the father of one of the guys I work with was one of the first firefighters to respond on 9/11. Luckily he made it out of there alive...

    The project's initial $14bn (7bn) budget has continued to rise

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/7483590.stm

    The owner of the World Trade Center has abandoned the timetable for rebuilding work at the site of the 9/11 attacks, saying it was "not realistic".

    Port Authority of New York and New Jersey executive director, Christopher Ward, listed over a dozen issues that had slowed work and raised costs.

    New dates for the completion of a memorial, skyscrapers and a transit hub are expected to be issued in September.

    It is unclear if the centrepiece Freedom Tower, will now be scaled back.

    The tower, intended as a replacement for the destroyed Twin Towers, had been scheduled for completion in 2006 and then 2011, but the latest estimate is 2013.

    At 1,776ft (541m) it would be the tallest building in the US.
