The year was 2012 when in New York, in the World Trade Center area (where the Twin Towers were located) the project for the construction of the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church was started by the Spanish architect, engineer and sculptor Santiago Calatrava. Completely destroyed by the fall of the South Tower during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church will be rebuilt in the eastern part of the new Liberty Park. The project is led by The Friends of St. Nicholas, a non-profit organization with an independent board of directors consisting of 13 members. Due to delays, the project has been postponed with the aim of opening the church to the public by September 11, 2021, on the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that struck the entire neighboring area. The St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church project was officially presented in 2013 and the idea was to develop the building following the model of the Holy Savior Church in Istanbul. The structure reached its peak in 2016, but due to financial problems, construction was halted in 2017. The structure will light up after dark, like a beacon of hope on the World Trade Center campus. The church will be presented with an innovative design, with white outer walls that despite the contrast with the surrounding buildings, will be perfectly immersed in the New York scene.
