Database Manager on July 04, 2015:

Updated through online information from Sam Cherubin. -- After the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the organ was deemed unplayable due to the huge amounts of dust and debris from the collapse of the WTC. In 2003 the organ was moved to storage, and in 2011 the organ was given to Johns Creek United Methodist Church in Georgia. The gallery case and facade pipes are only of what is left.
