CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Sights and sounds of this day in 2001, when America suffered the worst terrorist attack on its soil.

On the eve of the Sept. 11 anniversary, the faces and recorded voices of those who died have been unveiled as part of the future 9/11 Memorial Museum. No opening date has been set for the museum.

It’s really a great thing that they’re doing this because it keeps, you know, not only my son’s legacy alive but everyone else that passed that day. It tells great stories about what was lost that day.

— Josephine Acquaviva

Paul Acquaviva lived nearby in the town of Glen Rock with his wife, Courtney, and their daughter. Courtney was pregnanat with their second child. Paul left a career in law to be a vice president at Cantor Fitzgerald’s subsidiary eSpeed, hoping to have time for his family. On September 11, Paul was at work on the North Tower’s 103rd floor. He was 29-years-old.

The Museum was designed, with some protest regarding underground position of the museum. The museum will have some of the artifacts of 9/11/2001, and pieces of steel from the Twin Towers. “The final steel” is the last piece of steel to leave Ground Zero in May 2002. The planned completion of the museum was set for the 11th Anniversary of the terror attacks — on or around September 11, 2012. On December 2011, the construction of the museum came to a temporary halt. According to the Associated Press, there are some financial disputes between the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum foundation over the responsibility for infrastructure costs. As of March 13, 2012, active discussions regarding to the issue are already underway and construction has resumed. The museum will feature 110,000 square feet of exhibition space, including photographs, videotapes, voice messages, recovered property, clothing and other personal effects, workplace memorabilia, and incident-specific documents according to the website for the National September 11 Memorial & Museum foundation.

In May 2006, it was disclosed that the estimated construction costs for the 9/11 Memorial, which includes the museum, had risen to over US$1 billion.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the costs of building the Sept. 11 memorial are skyrocketing and must be capped at $500 million. ‘There’s just not an unlimited amount of money that we can spend on a memorial,’ Bloomberg said. Any figure higher than $500 million to build the memorial to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks would be “inappropriate”, even if the design has to be changed, he said.

In 2012 the overall costs of construction are closing in on a figure of $700 million with an expected $60 million per year operating budget.
