Construction work has started again at ground zero, site of the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11, which was flooded by Superstorm Sandy.
About 750 workers are back at it, now that more than 95% of the storm surge at the 16-acre site has been pumped out, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced.
Also, pumping has been completed at the site's 9/11 Memorial, which was deluged by 16 million gallons of water a week ago, Cuomo said in a statement.

Why in the world is Van Jones a guest on one of your news shows? He is a self-proclaimed Communist. I saw him say it in a speach. You have really lowered your standards!
Communism (or the dictatorship of the proletariat), as is Marxism, is dead. Von Jones may believe in the fight to overcome the economic inequality of man.....but that's more socialist in thinking. O
So we now focus all our efforts for the next 10 years to track down Sandy and kill her.
Track down Sandy, LOL!
We're gonna smoke 'er out!
Do you really believe CNN, or anybody else for that matter reads these comments?
Save us mittens, your our onlly hope, noo wait, that was Obie one. nevermind
Track down Sandy, thats a good one @Portland tony. Didn't we offer the remains of OBL to Neptune, perhaps that made him angry? lol
Also on Van Jones I agree.
good morning all.
Obama can tell you banasy. Sandy needs to be taken to court.
No, please, Jeff Frank, I'd much rather YOU tell me.
I've already had my daily phone call with the POTUS, and I forgot to ask.
Fill me in. Please.
Im thinking those 750 construction workers would being NYC more of a service by helping the victims of Sandy than working on a monument to the victims of 9/ll. I lost 2 family members on 9/ll but they arent commin back, help those that are!
Ty @ little mister, and im sure it they are listening to me they would agree. Doesnt make sense that these people are doing a better service working on this now, when they could and should be helping the living. Monuments are nice but not necessary.
Those construction workers weren't hired to work on post Sandy restoration. They were hired to work at the WTC site. And I'm sure they don't want any trouble with the Union.
I KNOW what they were hired for, i just think the priorities are pretty screwed up in that particular city when they wanta go ahead with a marathon and a monument for people that are not comming back (my sister and b-i-l included), than the ppl suffering.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo doing the POTUS job for NYC - New Yorkers take of their own the best - Pres. Romney's FEMA plan give States some control would have helped here even more.
james bond....."you're our only hope"
I think that the work here can wait. There are 4.4 million people who need more help in New Jersey and New York than the WTC. I know that this place is also important, but I agree with Chrissy, the poeple who died here will not come back by them working on this place first, they should get their priorities straight up and start helping those who really need the help.!!!!!
