Thirteen years after the horrific terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center, the Ground Zero Memorial Site will open its doors to the 9/11 Memorial Museum and mark the completion of the largest building in North America – the Freedom Tower. Yet, perched above the memorial pools is the foundation for the last, smallest, and relatively unknown project to be rebuilt and resurrected at Ground Zero: a small Greek Orthodox Church – the only religious site destroyed on 9/11. The Church at Ground Zero explores the David and Goliath tale of the Church’s quest to rebuild its religious presence on America’s most sacred site.
