NEW YORK — During Hurricane Sandy, the site of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum complex was overcome by more than 16 million gallons of floodwater, which ruined wires and drywall and ravaged a handful of iconic artifacts.
In an emotional essay on the museum's website, director Alice Greenwald described seeing "seven feet of standing water throughout the museum."
