Newseum’s World Trade Center antenna going into storage instead of 9/11 museum

Part of the antenna that once topped 1 World Trade Center (the North Tower) will be put into storage at the end of 2019 when its current home Washington DC’s Newseum closes, reports Joe Concha for The Hill.

The Newseum currently houses 360 feet of the antenna, which was donated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. They specified that they wanted the piece on public display.

Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman told Gothamist, “We will work with [the Newseum], other stakeholders, and continue conversations with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center to find a suitable new location, for such an important and historic World Trade Center artifact.”
