MANHATTAN — The September 11th Memorial at Ground Zero is on track to open in time for the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks — but the $508 million tourist magnet reportedly won't contain a single toilet.
The New York Post reported that visitors to the site will eventually be able to use the bathrooms at the nearby September 11th Museum — but that won't be completed until 2012.
"Visitors will be provided with information to help plan their visit, including being advised that bathrooms will not be accessible on the site," Bloomberg spokesman Andrew Brent told the Post.
For now, the closest bathrooms are located at Century 21, a shopping megastore that was bombarded during President Barack Obama's recent visit to Ground Zero, a staffer told the paper.
