Park51′s Home Faces Wrecking Ball
by Lauren Elkies Schram
Soho Properties' Park51 community center and prayer space at 45-51 Park Place is facing demolition, according to Department of Buildings records.
Applications were filed today to demolish the five-story 45 Park Place and the four-story 51 Park Place.
Park51 officially opened its doors as a cultural and community center at 45-51 Park Place in September 2011, a year after controversy ensued following announcement of plans for a 15-story Muslim institution two blocks from the World Trade Center, which Islamic radicals attacked on September 11, 2001.
