Earlier today, NY1 reported that a gust of wind caused a steel load to break glass on the south side of 4 World Trade Center. As a precautionary measure, the 9/11 Memorial was evacuated and will remain closed for the rest of the day.
The 9/11 Memorial Visitor Center and the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site remained open and are operating under normal schedules.
Normal visiting hours at the 9/11 Memorial will resume Thursday, June 28. Reserve free visitor passes at 911memorial.org. Memorial officials sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by the closure.
