WNYC began visiting the World Trade Center site in April 2010 and continues to document the construction of One World Trade Center, the 9/11 Memorial, the transportation hub and the people working on the site.

On this week in June, following a sweltering week, One World Trade Center has poured concrete floors up to the 62nd floor, and workers are installing the names at the Memorial Pool as well as a heating and cooling unit under the bronze name plaques.

9/11 Memorial and Museum

Below the plastic cover are the names of those who died on 9/11 carved in bronze. On this day, workers were installing the cooling and heating system, which will allow visitors to touch the names in the summer and the bronze will be cool, and in the winter it will be warm.
