Meanwhile, construction on the 9/11 museum will resume:

Mayor Bloomberg and Governor Cuomo's dispute over which group should pay for and oversee the 9/11 Memorial and Museum brought construction to a halt in June, but on Monday night they finally reached a deal. "I’m very gratified that on the eve of this important anniversary we are able to announce an agreement that will ensure the completion of the 9/11 museum," said Bloomberg in a statement, adding that work "will be restarted very soon and will not stop until the museum is completed." Officials are hoping that the underground museum, which was scheduled to open on Tuesday before construction stopped after the tenth anniversary, will be completed by the end of 2013 — though it definitely won't be finished in time for next September 11.
