Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox church in New York City that was destroyed on Sept. 11th, is taking legal action against the agency that owns Ground Zero.  The agency has reneged on a promise to rebuild the church.  The Wall Street Journal reports that St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church filed a notice of claim against the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey on Monday.
