The USS Arizona Memorial visitor’s center is sinking:
The current visitor’s center — across the harbor from the submerged battleship — is sinking because it was built on reclaimed land, causing water to seep into its basement. Engineers estimate the building will last only a few more years.
The current center has been handling about twice as many people per day as it was designed to accommodate.
