The overpriced, cash-plagued 9/11 Museum is not going to be finished on schedule because of money problems. The facility was slated to open next year in time for the 11th anniversary in September, but the foundation overseeing the project is contesting the $300 million the Port Authority says it’s owed for infrastructure work done at the site.
The foundation claims the Port Authority has it backwards and it’s the one who is owed $140 million for construction delays. “There is no chance of it being open on time. Work has basically stopped,” said Mayor Bloomberg, who is also chairman of the memorial. Nothing commemorates the dead and says we will never forget like financial disputes at Ground Zero.
