A 9/11 Waterfall Flows in Brooklyn

In case you missed it, there were a series of successful tests of a mock-up section of the 9/11 Memorial waterfalls in Brooklyn earlier this year. The Associated Press reported on the mock-up waterfall demonstration. The 30-foot mock-up is no longer at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. It was dismantled after the favorable tests. Several things were measured and reviewed, including the appearance of the water as it spilled over the top and into a small reflective pool.   Learn more about the Memorial pools set within the fallen Twin Towers footprints. The 9/11 Memorial will open next year in 2011.

Architect Michael Arad designed the "Reflecting Absence" memorial at the World Trade Center site, formerly known as ground zero.
