I have mine and I’m certain you have your answer to what will become an age-old question, “Where were you on that fateful day?”
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s board was to consider a complicated land deal with the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church at a board meeting Thursday. The leaders of the 300-member congregation have been negotiating with the Port Authority for years over a price for the site where the church stood before the trade center’s south tower collapsed onto it on Sept. 11, 2001.
So, for 300 members in a small rites-of-passage sanctuary, they will have the opportunity to rebuild for… [COUGH] $20 MILLION! Imagine how many frescoes, altars and metric tons of that pungent, olfactory-numbing incense that’ll buy?
You know the adage, “Time heals all wounds”? Well, with $20 million, that kind of cash would snuff out some scabs as well. Kudos to “St. Nick” for a real Christmas in July.
