City Room has an excellent set of photographs of a 1:200 scale model of the former World Trade Center complex that was recently donated to The National September 11 Memorial & Museum. The scale model was a gift from the American Architectural Foundation which exhibited the model at The Skyscraper Museum in 2004.

I think this is pretty neat and it’ll be wonderful to be able to see such a grand miniature of the former WTC towers. But God only knows when the city will complete the museum and memorial. What is it now…nearly 8 years since the 9/11 attacks and downtown is still a big hole? That’s ridiculous…
