NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A new fee for some reservations at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum has some family members of Sept. 11 victims fuming mad.
As CBS 2’s Steve Langford reported, the memorial has added a $2 service fee to online and phone reservations, and relatives fell the foundation that is operating the memorial is cashing in on all that they have lost.
The enduring bond the world still feels with the hallowed ground where the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center once stood remained evident more than a decade later. Crowds were lined up on Sunday morning, and the donation box was filled with voluntary contributions.
But victims’ families were shocked and offended by the idea that officials are now charging the fee for advance registrations.
