Deal Struck to Rebuild Greek Orthodox Church Destroyed on 9/11

Friday, October 14, 2011

A deal has finally been struck to rebuild St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, which was destroyed on September 11.

The new church will be about three times as large as the old one and is just a short distance down Liberty Street from the ruined chapel it had occupied for 85 years.

The resolution of the dispute was announced Friday by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The church will rebuild on Port Authority land.

The settlement was mediated by the office of Governor Andrew Cuomo. It will end a lawsuit filed earlier this year.
