Another mosque project planned near WTC

Local religious group Masjid Manhattan wants to build a new mosque adjacent to the World Trade Center, according to the New York Post. Masjid Manhattan, a 1,500-member organization, has so far raised $8.5 million of the $11 million needed to launch the project, according to group officials. This isn’t the only proposed mosque looking for a new home near the WTC — earlier this month Community Board 1 approved a proposal to build a $100 million, 13-story mosque and Islamic cultural center at 45 Park Place near Broadway.
