Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Friday he was confident that St. Nicholas Church, the only place of worship destroyed in the 9-11 attacks, would be rebuilt.

In his weekly conversation with radio host John Gambling, the mayor suggested a deal for the church's rebuilding was imminent.

"Oh, there's no question about that," Mr. Bloomberg said on the radio program. "The archbishop of the Greek Orthodox Church lives across the street from me, and if you think I want him coming across with his staff and beating on my door and saying, 'Come on, Mike!' I'm not going to let that happen."
