New York's first Muslim Democratic Club launches, with a focus on local issues
by Azi Paybarah
The launch of New York City's first Muslim Democratic Club took place in a lounge on West 38th Street—a common area of a fancy residential builing, with marble floors, leather couches and a glass-enclosed fireplace.
"Now I know how the other side lives. This is a really fancy place," said New York City Comptroller John Liu, one of two mayoral candidates who attended the club's party.
The other candidate to attend was Sal Albanese, a former Democratic Councilman from Bay Ridge.
