The first marble slabs have begun installation on the curved central wall of Santiago Calatrava‘s St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in the Financial District.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is developing the project, which sits directly to the south of the original 16-acre World Trade Center complex and rests above the subterranean ramps and southern entrance to the Vehicle Security Center.
