St. Nick @ Ground Zero

The chilly St. Nicholas Feastday vespers at Ground Zero in Manhattan on December 5, 2010. I hid under my scarf, but the cameraman found me. Note the melted bell and waterlogged book and icon.

Sept. 11, 2009

His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America held a memorial service today at Ground Zero in New York on the site of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, which has not been rebuilt due to real estate politics, despite substantial donations. It was the only religious building destroyed in the 9/11 attacks; the archdiocese 9/11 Website has a budget and design plan.
Because our offices have moved to Midtown, this is the first year we didn't watch the memorial service live or wander past the flower-strewn aftermath.

These are photos I took on Sept. 11, 2008 on Liberty Street, near our former World Financial Center office and the firehouse that lost many men.
