Luxury Accommodations at Ground Zero

For nine months St. Pauls served as a place of rest and refuge for recovery workers at ground zero. Open 24/7, thousands of volunteers came from all over America to make beds, hang up notes and banners, rub aching shoulders and backs, or just to talk with the workers over a cup of coffee. We were known as a four-star accommodation down on ground zero, says the Reverend Lyndon Harris. And so bologna sandwiches were never served here.
