2nd mosque is point of contention in Lackawanna as variance is sought
by Jay Tokasz
Lackawanna's 1st Ward has long been considered the Muslim part of town – home of a bustling mosque and school, Arab-owned corner stores and the first native of Yemen to serve on the City Council.
But increasingly, Muslims are dispersing across all of Lackawanna.
In a sign of the continued growth, they want to establish another place to pray. And this time, they're looking clear across to the other side of the city, to a busy commercial stretch of Abbott Road in the 3rd Ward.
