Thread: Ground Zero Mosque

    So you don't oppose a mosque at ground zero, just a mosque opened by Rauf.

    I had thought you said otherwise (that you opposed any religious buildings).

    He's a slumlord that has put resident lives in jeopardy and a tax cheat that has been ripping off the US public for years.

    Well, since the mosque part of the Park 51 Community Center is only a very very small part of the intended use of the facility you may be right that a second one is not needed. However, the other activities that would be available in the Community Center do not exist in the area so in fact the facility would serve a very important and needed purpose.

    The NYC Department of Parks and Recreation already operate two indoor / outdoor red centers in lower Manhattan. Tony Dapolito Recreation Center and the Hamilton Rec Center, both offer indoor swimming, basketball, volleyball, fitness centers and include classroom space for traditional education and aerobics types classes for kids to seniors.

    There are not a lot of residences in the immediate area of Park Place as this is a business center. Lets' face it, the business community will not be going here as most have fitness centers right in their buildings, either company or privately operated. The NYC rec facilities are smack in the middle of residential neighborhoods and readily accessible.

    Also the YMCA of NYC operates three of the largest rec facilities in lower Manhattan and none offer the overnight accommodations of old.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    A rec center in the middle of a business district is perfect it allows people to do activities during their lunch, and right before or right after work. This is a perfect location for that.
