St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, destroyed on 9/11, is being rebuilt

St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox National Shrine, the new version of the only church destroyed in the terrorist attacks of 9/11, is rapidly growing across from the World Trade Center in Liberty Park, reports Peter Haskell of CBS New York.

The original St. Nicholas Church was very small and was obliterated in the South Tower’s collapse.

The church will soon be covered in Greek marble from the same vein used to build the Parthenon.

An opening is planned for October, 2018.
