Progress report: Granite is filling 9/11 Memorial pool (Updated X3)

Section by section, panels of smooth dark granite is being installed in the north pool of the 9/11 Memorial.  Nearly 4,000 of these panels - each weighing about 420 pounds - will fill the memorial pool.  The two memorial pools, roughly about an acre in size,  will be lined with the granite.
