Chris Ward and St. Nicholas, before the attacks

After a 19-month stalemate with the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, which was destroyed after the Sept. 11 attacks, the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey said it hopes to renew talks with the church next week, according to DNAinfo. The two groups have been deadlocked over where the church should rebuild — the Port Authority said it needed to use the church’s original land at 155 Cedar Street near the World Trade Center site to build a security facility. While the Port Authority offered the church a larger site — and $20 million in rebuilding funds — church officials said they wouldn’t budge. Chris Ward, executive director of the Port Authority, said he’s eager to reach an agreement with St. Nicholas. “Our hope is that we can successfully negotiate appropriate compensation,” Ward said. “If the church fails to negotiate in good faith… we would have to invoke some kind of eminent domain.” [DNAinfo]
