NYC Landmark Commission Rejects Effort To Halt “Ground Zero” Mosque Project
It would appear that the legal effort to stop the so-called “Ground Zero” Mosque project is at an end:
The Landmarks Preservation Commission gave the thumbs down this morning to giving a lower Manhattan building historic status — paving the way for a controversial new mosque to open just blocks from Ground Zero.
The vote opens the door for the demolition of the 152-year-old building on Park Place, where construction is planned for the mosque.
The legal battle may be over, but I doubt the demagoguery is.
