A day shy of the 11th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, New York City's Mayor Michael Bloomberg and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo reached an agreement to resume construction on the Memorial Museum at the World Trade Center site. A dispute between the state and the city over who will pay for and oversee the Davis Brody Bond-designed project stalled its construction for nearly a year. Buried beneath Michael Arad and Peter Walker's memorial plaza and accessed through Snøhetta's angular entry pavilion (both completed), the museum is now tentatively slated for completion by late 2013.
