Construction is nearing completion on St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in the Financial District of New York City.

According to the New York Yimby, the reinforced concrete structure is now nearly fully clad in Pentelic marble and stone.

The radiant, cream-coloured light of the Pentelic marble will reflect a warm ambience outward toward those who stand on the hallowed ground of Ground Zero, where nearly 3,000 people perished in the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001.

The cross has also been reinstalled back on the top of the dome.

The St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church was recently blessed on November 2 in which Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and Archbishop of New York, Timothy Cardinal Dolan, took part.
