MYFOXNY.COM – A mosque not too far from Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan is now active — and it’s not the one causing all the controversy. Hisham Elzanaty’s attorney spoke to Fox 5 about a new mosque at 30 Cliff Street.

Elzanaty, the majority owner in the controversial proposed mosque two blocks from the World Trade Center site, told Fox 5′s Charles Leaf last week that he only picked the site because he thought it would be a great place to pray.

.Notice that we have never heard of this Elzanaty before! And the story for why this location was picked has once again changed.

Now there is such a place, so Elzanaty’s attorney went to check it out.

"I had the pleasure of meeting the imam, I spoke with him today," said Wolodymyr Starosolsky. "The people were very kind and very courteous."

Elzanaty and his attorney are now considering whether this location is good enough to replace the project near Ground Zero.

Starosolsky said there are just proposals, ideas.

"There is a long road to go before you get to the end," he said. He also stressed that the person who is the ultimate decision maker is Elzanaty.

In the days ahead, Elzanaty plans to meet with the imam of this new mosque and the families of 9/11 victims. He is reassessing the project near Ground Zero.
