The New York Times reports that the new St. Nicholas Orthodox Church will moved from the west to the east of the proposed Liberty Park at the south side of Ground Zero.

Even more dramatically is that the park may be 25-30 feet above street level to accomodate ramps going into the complex. LMDC President Kevin Rampe is quoted as saying, the corporation would work with the Port Authority to ensure that the park design is “fitting and appropriate,” adding that he could even imagine an inventive designer exploiting the unusual topography in a creative way.
