25. There's a major problem to that -
There were churches directly across the street from the WTC. fficial&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wl" target="_blank">

St Paul's chapel - / which is the oldest public building in continuous use in the US - which opened in 1766 - George Washington prayed there. "Despite being directly across from the site of the World Trade Centre, this little church was relatively undamaged in he aftermath of the attack - an ancient Sycamore tree fell over and its branches acted as a shield to save the church from almost certain destruction." (copied from one of the reviews - fficial&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wl" target="_blank"> (I worked in one of the small WTC buildings in the 1970s, and remember going over with co-workers to see this church and the gardens around it.)


St Peter's which is the oldest Roman Catholic parish in NYC - built in 1840. It currently has the cross that was made from WTC beams.
