Good question. I’m not sure but would LOVE to help figure it out.
Soho Properties – the developer of the Islamic center – only owns 45-47 Park Place. But, they changed the name of the proposed site from Cordoba House to Park 51…playing off the street number 51 on Park Place in New York.
So, my goal of building something as equally controversial to 50+% of Americans at 51 Park Place is simple – ha! All I need is a couple million dollars to outbid Soho Properties.
Note: I think freedom of speech/religion is the cornerstone of our country. Build a mosque within blocks of Ground Zero if you think that’s a smart idea. But, I’d love to see which insurance company is underwriting a policy for the proposed location…there are a lot of crazy a$$ Tim McVeigh wannabes ready and willing to rent a Ryder truck.
