'Ground Zero mosque' faces eviction from rich condo board
by Isabel Vincent and Melissa Klein
A Tribeca condo board threatened to stop "Ground Zero mosque" worshipers from renting space in its tony building, sparking charges of discrimination.
Park51, the organization behind the controversial Islamic prayer space and community center proposed for Park Place, leased the condo's 49-51 Warren St. storefront in August.
But by Sept. 18, before any prayer services were even conducted there, the condo — where apartments sell for $1 million and up and one features a bowling alley — posted a legal notice telling Park51 to get out by month's end.
