The World Trade Center memorial is reopening to the public now that damage from Sandy has been taken care of.

National September 11 Memorial & Museum president Joe Daniels said Monday water that rushed into the lower Manhattan site has been pumped out.

Parts of the visitor center and a private entrance room for victims' families were damaged by 4 feet of water, as was some of the under-construction museum. But Daniels says "the most sacred" point of the memorial remains intact — the reflective fountains ringed by the names of the dead.

A tree that made it through the Sept. 11 terror attack also survived the storm.

The memorial reopens Tuesday morning.
